Sustainable energy islands

When it comes to issues of energy, the UK is a country of contrasts. It is the windiest country in the EU, yet until recently it had very little renewable energy and most of it was from waste biomass. It is a country with some of Western Europe’s highest rates of home ownership and also the highest rates of fuel poverty. We invented trams and district heating systems, yet we abandoned these for less energy efficient and more individualised energy technologies. When it comes to seeking lessons and inspiration for the transition to a low carbon society, we can find many good practice examples in other northern European countries. But we can also find good examples closer to home.
