Renewable energies
 

Energy generated from renewable fuels could be used to provide heat and power to farmhouse, outbuildings, glasshouses etc., or on a wider scale to the local community. Further business opportunities exist where farmers establish co-operatives to supply biofuels or energy crops to larger scale energy producers.
