Farmers and landowners might consider an anaerobic digestion system. You could even book an energy assessment for your business or property to identify the best way to save costs from the Norfolk Energy Consultancy.

“It is wonderful to be a part of something that can have such a positive effect on the way individuals view and treat the world we live in. Education and awareness are the key factors in making the changes necessary to combat global warming and the inevitable peak oil catastrophe.” said Andrea Bramhall of Deepdale Backpackers & Camping.

Deepdale Backpackers & Camping are looking forward to hosting this wide range of organisations. Of course you can have a look at the eco-friendly facilities of Deepdale, and learn more about how they reduce their energy costs, run a more sustainable business, yet offer excellent quality accommodation.
