Once you have reduced energy consumption as much as possible you might want to consider generating your own heat and/or electricity
There are now a number of proven technologies such as
- solar photovoltaic (often written as solar pv)
- wind turbines
- solar thermal
- ground source heat pumps
- air source heat pumps

There are also schemes that can assist in financing
Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is the first financial support scheme for renewable heat of its kind in the world.
Feed in tariff (FITs) mean that energy suppliers have to (compulsory for big six suppliers) make regular payments to householders and communities who generate their own electricity from renewable or low carbon sources such as solar photovoltaic (PV) or wind turbines.
