The article reports on the plan by the British government to simplify the planning procedure for certain farm-based renewable energy ventures in Great Britain. The amended regulations, which will become effective starting April 6, 2012, cover roof-mounted or stand-alone solar panels and ground and water-source heat pumps, among others. The opinion of British Minister Greg Clark on the plan is also cited.
