We use a variety of renewable energy schemes where it does not compromise the special qualities of a place. Using the right technology on the right scale, we can generate energy and make the places we look after more useful and beautiful.
Here’s our guide to the different ways you can generate power:
Solar panels that generate electricity are a great source of renewable energy and can be found at many of our places.
Find out how solar thermal panels use the sun's heat to warm up water.
Using the power of running water to generate electricity, hydro-electric power is renewable but not for everyone
Heat can be recovered from the air or ground to be recycled back into a property's heating system. This is called a heat pump, and is less complicated than it sounds.
A biomass boiler efficiently burns plants and wood to provide heat and hot water for some of our places. Find out how it works.
These case studies provide a comprehensive guide to how a building has been refurbished, adapted or a new structure built, often using green technology.
We're going greener. We're pledging to reduce our use of fossil fuels by 50 per cent by 2020. We aim to cut our carbon emissions from energy use for heat and electricity by 45 per cent, beating the government's target of 34 per cent.
Our target is to generate 50 per cent of all energy we use from renewable sources by 2020. We've been successful in decommissioning oil tanks, lowering our energy costs and reducing carbon emissions.
