concentrates on dissemination of information about renewable energy,

ready to develop biomass-energy projects when they become viable, recruiting
more farmers and landowners to join them in any appopriate
project. Home Grown Energy is still available for running short courses on
- Information on biomass-fuelled systems.
- Energy crops.
- Biomass Farmer & User.
- "Home-grown Energy from Short Potation
Coppice", a handbook for farmers, published by Farming Press.
