Energy Now has been providing farmers and landowners with independent information and guidance on renewables and low-carbon solutions / opportunities since 2007. The popular magazine, converted to a website in 2020, features topical & informative content including news & developments from across the sector, advice blogs, case studies of existing schemes, interviews with key industry figures, information on events, hosted webinars, and a directory of suppliers.
The partnership will provide NFU members with this information & guidance on renewable and/or low carbon energy solutions most suited to their needs.
David Jacobmeyer, Publisher of Energy Now (pictured left), said:
“We are very excited to formalise this partnership with NFU Energy, having worked closely with them and the NFU for many years, in connection with both Energy Now and our event, the Low Carbon Agriculture Show.”
“Our organisations share the same goal – to support the nation’s agricultural communities in choosing the most suitable renewable and energy efficient systems, that compliment their existing businesses, drive down harmful emissions and energy costs, and ultimately help to mitigate the effects of climate change.”
“As energy costs soar, the costs of alternative systems fall and we transition to a more sustainable society, there has arguably never been a better time to invest in low-carbon energy solutions, or to look at ways of optimising the returns from existing schemes.”
“We look forward to continuing our work with the nation’s farmers, who are essential to the growth of the clean energy sector and our decarbonisation plans”.
Lisa Howkins, Sales and Marketing Director, NFU Energy, (pictured right) said:
“We are delighted to announce our partnership with Energy Now, the UK organisation highlighting renewable energy generation and better carbon management in agricultural and rural communities.”
“I spoke recently at their Low Carbon Agriculture show (run in partnership with the NFU) about our Electric Vehicles charger installation and our associated vehicle telemetry services.”
“We look forward to seeing what more can be achieved through this fantastic partnership.”
