BRITAIN’S ageing electricity grid is holding back the UK’s renewable energy industry, experts have claimed.
THE first gas to grid anaerobic digestion (AD) plant is due to come on stream later this year.
Features and analysis
Further cuts to renewable energy subsidies may be on the horizon, but experts believe farmers can still get a good deal. Olivia Midgley reports.

WITH a five megawatt solar farm in operation on his land - enough to meet the electricity needs of 1,500 homes – Clive Sage is one of a new generation of renewable energy farmers who have made the most of recent commercial interest in leasing farmland to generate solar power.
