Scottish farmers could provide work for renewable energy course graduates

Students on renewable energy courses should continue to monitor the progress of renewable energy projects in Scotland, as Scottish farmers and landowners have been encouraged to introduce energy-saving technologies on to their properties.

The Scotsman reported that Kirsty Macpherson, of Gillespie Macandrew's energy group, highlighted a review of feed-in tariffs (FIT) being carried out by the secretary of state for energy and climate change, saying that action should be taken now to get maximum benefits.

Ms Macpherson explained that the government is aiming to make FIT more financially efficient, which could see the savings that are passed to participants reduced.

She commented: "I believe that Scottish farmers and landowners who are looking to diversify into renewable energy derived from hydro or wind sources should do so sooner rather than later."

Caroline Lucas MP recently told renewable energy course graduates that the UK government needs a more consistent message when it comes to developing low-carbon technologies.
