Systems installed after this deadline will only receive 21p for every unit of electricity generated, rather than the current 43.3p. This extends the payback period of a system to up to 25 […]

Their online video Talks are inspirational – famous speakers like Jamie Oliver, Tim Berners Lee, J J Abrams, Douglas Adams and Bono sit alongside the world’s leading Technology, Entertainment and Design experts to deliver theories and views on the […]
We were waiting for him to announce the expected reductions to the Feed-In-Tariff, but no… Not yet. He’s teasing us.
