Solar panels (PV) Solar electricity systems, commonly known as solar photovoltaics (PV) capture the sun’s energy using photovoltaic cells. The cells convert the sunlight into electricity, which can be used to run household appliances and lighting.
Wind turbines Wind turbines harness the power of the wind and use it to generate electricity. Small systems known as ‘microwind’ or ‘small-wind’ turbines can produce electricity to help power the lights and electrical appliances in a typical home.
Generate heat Wood-fuelled heating Heat and hot water from wood-fuelled stoves and boilers. Wood-fuelled or biomass heating systems burn wood pellets, chips or logs to power central heating and hot water boilers or to provide warmth in a single room.
Solar water heating Solar water heating systems use free heat from the sun to warm domestic hot water, with a conventional boiler or immersion heater as backup, to make the water hotter or provide hot water when solar energy is unavailable.
Ground source heat pumps Ground source heat pumps use pipes buried in the garden to extract heat from the ground. This is usually used to heat radiators or underfloor heating systems and hot water.
Air source heat pumps Air source heat pumps absorb heat from the outside air. This heat is usually used to heat radiators, underfloor heating systems, or warm air convectors and hot water in your home.
Generate electricity and heat Micro-CHP (micro combined heat and power) ‘Micro-CHP’ stands for micro combined heat and power. This refers to a heating technology which generates heat and electricity simultaneously, from the same energy source, in individual homes or buildings.
Financial incentives When you generate your own energy, you don’t just save money by not having to buy that energy – you can also get paid for the energy you produce.
