  • A GrowSave training event led by Jon Swain and Oli Coe from Farm Energy Centre, held at the High Leigh Conference Centre in Hertfordshire. This event was aimed at edibles growers — especially those with high heat demand — who are interested in making use of biomass heating to reduce their energy costs. Read More...
  • ‘Spark Spread’ data is used by energy analysts to indicate the profitability of operating electricity generators; so if you have a CHP you have probably heard the term many times. But do you know what the figures mean and what they are telling you? Read More...
  • A half-day GrowSave workshop led by Farm Energy Centre, which provided growers with an interactive forum on the practical implementation of energy efficiency measures in high temperature protected cropping. With a focus on energy intensive production, the workshop was of particular interest to nurseries producing crops such as tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, aubergines, poinsettia, begonias, orchids and pot chrysanthemums.
