The end of
the world as we know it?
Change is happening and we are running out of conventional energy;
that is why energy prices are rising. It is not a conspiracy
by the nasty energy companies, it is a permanent fact of life.
Not only are we destroying the planet but, of more immediate
concern, we are facing the
collapse of a global economy based on cheap energy.
we bury our heads in the sand and hope it will all go away, pray
that someone else will find an answer, some magic new energy source
or ...do you want to be a part of the solution? And if do you
want to do something about it, what can you do? You certainly
cannot go out and build your own wind farm...or can you?
Is Microgeneration the answer? Sadly not
the whole answer, but at least it is a part of the answer and, perhaps more importantly, a part
that you can do something about. The reason you are on this site is
probably because you are looking for a way to do something constructive

is out there, what you can invest in and what is a total waste of
money. This is a public information site and we make no money
from what you buy or don't buy.
So what is Microgeneration?
Essentially it is stuff you can buy and install in your own home
which will reduce your energy bills and your impact on the
environment. Some produce heat from renewable fuels such as
biomass (wood), others produce electricity and some produce both
heat and power in a technology known as micro CHP (Combined Heat &
Power). Some are really good, some not so good and it does depend on
your own circumstances and lifestyle, where you live and what local resources
However, the most important thing you
need to know about Microgeneration is that it empowers you to make a
difference. It is not necessarily the most cost effective way
of meeting the challenges of climate change nor even is it always the
the best way to reduce your energy bills. What it can do
though is to enable you to make a difference. You can invest
your money in technologies which will reduce your carbon emissions
and your energy bills and help protect you against the
volatility of fuel prices over the coming years.
