Making sense of renewable energy technologies

This publication by the Carbon Trust is aimed at businesses that are looking to assess whether renewable energy technologies may be appropriate for their site. It explains the key technologies that are available and provides guidance on assessing the suitability of each technology for a particular site.

Case studies for businesses that have already chosen to install these technologies have been included to provide examples of real-life experience. Each section of the guide provides standalone advice on a specific renewable energy technology and can, therefore, be read individually or in conjunction with the rest of the guide.
