Renewable Energy

Alongside the need for sustainable food sources the requirement for renewable energy sources is paramount. Technologies such as solar power, wind and wave are all viable future alternatives.

Welcome to the Alternative Crops Network website. We aim through our website to increase the awareness of the willingness to use alternatives, sustainable farming methods and crops, as well as alternative energy sources to fossil fuels, such as photovoltaic solar power, wind and wave energy.

All these initiatives are required in order to safeguard our future as we head into a period where the consequences of our increasing population and over-reliance on fossil fuels will make themselves felt, and with a vengeance. Please feel free to email us directly to learn more about alternative crop sources.
