I found some interesting links to detailed information on renewable energy sources, their cost and what grants are available to help pay for them.

EnergyFuture has a lot of information...

The Energy Saving Trust has a lot of background information on Government's Green(ish) Programmes - insulation, higher efficiency etc

Much appreciated Geoff.

On the grants page we see that, Government's Low Carbon Building Programme has a budget of almost £80 million over three years. Pathetic really isn’t?
When will the government give this subject the attention it deserves.

Pathetic also were the answers given by three politicians, one being the then Secretary of State for the Environment, to the question “What are you doing personally in keeping CO2 emissions down” posed in the Radio4 Any Questions programme a couple of weeks ago. The answers ranged from not using plastic bags at the supermarket, to not letting the water run when cleaning your teeth, duel fuel cars and replacing domestic appliances with a greener model. It was the other member on the panel, a journalist, who suggested that life styles must change. Having a more efficient car or a more economic dishwasher is not the point. They should consider not having them at all.
