Renewable energy offers a great deal of opportunity for farmers, land owners and investors who are looking to generate a return on their investment and invest in a technology that contributes to cleaner, more environmentally friendly power.
Whilst Introducing Renewable Energy is not specifically focused on the financial side of the industry, there is a whole chapter on making money from renewable energy, explaining how various tariffs, subsidies and grants work and where you can find them. Information is provided on specific schemes in the United Kingdom and the United States as well as general information that applies to many places around the world.
The book also describes how you may be able to get a renewable energy system installed without paying for the hardware or installation. Instead, you provide the location - such as a windy field for wind power or a roof-top for solar, and share the rewards with a company who pays for the hardware and installation.
More importantly, Introducing Renewable Energy will give you a good understanding of the basics of renewable energy. You will learn how to assess the suitability of your site for Renewable Energy production, and you'll learn enough about the technology not to be mislead by sales people who are more interested in making the sale than providing you with the right advice.
