Business energy users in Sheffield have been shown how to cut costs on their commercial electricity expenditure.
The Star reports that rural companies in the area were invited to a course run by an officer from Sheffield Council and eco-training company Green Directions.
Advice was given about how to cut carbon emissions in the workplace and how to generate green electricity from small-scale wind turbines, solar panels and ground source heat pumps.
Mark Woodward of Green Directions told the newspaper: "This was one of the most stimulating events Green Directions has run. Almost everyone there had experience of installing green technologies or designing and constructing buildings."
Council officer Sharon Batty said the last year has seen increased interest in generating renewable energy.
"People who attended [the course] ranged from farmers to architects, other rural businesses and householders and they covered not only renewable energy but insulation and rainwater recycling," she added.
