Energy comparison customers in Scotland might be interested to hear that the country has signed a deal with China to boost its renewable power supplies.
According to the Scotsman, technology developed in Scotland will be used at a renewable energy conversion plant in the Far East, after W2E Engineering Scotland finalised the agreement with Shanghai Huanuan Boiler and Vessel Cochran.
Alex Salmond, first minister for Scotland, commented that the partnership will go on to fuel alternative cheap energy solutions "that are sustainable, renewable and environmentally proven".
"While China will benefit from improved waste management, green power and the direct manufacturing jobs in building the equipment and constructing and operating the plant, the Annan plant will benefit from undertaking the research and development, engineering and project management," he added.
Energy suppliers around the world are awakening to the commercial viability of going green, and consumers can do their bit by signing up to a green energy deal.
