Businesses 'increasingly investing in energy saving'

Businesses Businesses are likely to be finding it easier to invest in energy saving technology, thanks to the government's recently launched Feed-in Tariff scheme, it has been claimed.

According to James Murray, editor of BusinessGreen.com, the scheme has "significantly changed the financial cache", meaning that renewable energy technology is now a more economical option for both companies and homeowners than it was before.

As a result, more businesses are now likely to be taking action to reduce their carbon emissions in order to both save money on utility bills and take advantage of the PR benefits.

However, he added that there is still "massive" room for improvement.

"So many business properties have car parks or areas that are suitable for a wind turbine, so there is huge, huge potential," Mr Murray explained.

InvestinCornwall recently reported that the renewable energy sector is now seen by many business leaders as more important to the economy than the financial or retail industries.
