Business energy users are being encouraged to take up small-scale energy generation across the country.
The Yorkshire Post reported that Evoco Energy, which provides the technology for wind power, is seeing increased uptake of its small-scale turbines.
Evoco is set to have an installed base of around 500 sites by the end of this year, which will be driven by farmers, homeowners and commercial landlords hoping to save money by producing their own cheap energy.
Ryan Gill, managing director of the company, told the newspaper: "Small-scale wind may have lagged [behind] other renewables in the past, but we are seeing strong momentum through 2011 and beyond.
"We believe that the UK's wind resource represents an opportunity for an economic boom comparable to the exploitation of North Sea oil in the 1970s," he added.
Meanwhile, energy secretary Chris Huhne is set to reopen the UK's first commercial wind farm in Cornwall today (February 22nd).
