Renewable energy is energy that comes from natural resources such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, and geothermal heat, which replenish themselves naturally. As supplies of fossil fuels run down and are not replaced, there will be massive investments in renewable energy.

Copeland aims to play a vital part in contributing towards Britain’s energy needs. We have a firm historic record in energy production. We must now evolve with the times to ensure that we remain a key player in securing energy production for the UK.

We will encourage people and businesses in Copeland to start using microgeneration technology such as solar panels, ground pumps, small wind turbines, and biofuels.
