An insight into renewable energy for Midlands farmers and landowners
More than 200 farmers and landowners from across the Midlands have already registered for the FiT for FARMING networking event supported by the CLA and being staged on 10 May 2012 at Stoneleigh Park.
Now in its second year, this popular event has been tailored for farmers looking to develop their own renewable energy projects, attracting payments under the Feed-in Tariff (FiT) scheme and the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).
On the day farmers and landowners will have their own specific schedule of pre-arranged appointments with selected and relevant
companies who are experienced in the type of renewable projects that will prove of interest to each individual.
In preparation for this pre-arranged meetings service, each delegate has submitted a profile detailing the types of renewable project they are looking to develop. These profiles provide a unique insight into how the FiT and RHI schemes are encouraging farmers to plan renewable energy/heat projects.
CLA Rural Adviser Donna Tavernor said; "Not only is this an important event, it should be a very productive one. We have tried hard to make the most effective use of everyone's time and people only have to discuss the technologies in which they are interested. Gone are the days of sitting through hours of presentations waiting for the relevant part.
"The CLA is increasingly involved in helping its members understand the technology as well as lobbying, with considerable success, to get a better deal for its members.
Farmers and landowners planning their own renewable project can apply to participate free of charge via www.fitforfarming.com/
Technology suppliers and professional services firms can also register as Meetings Hosts via www.fitforfarming.com/meetingshost and set-up a series of pre-arranged appointments with landowners planning renewable projects.
