It's a blustery day at Maryport, where our reporter's meeting one of the men behind a four-metre high power generator that has been installed there.
You can see the full story on this evening's programme.
Maryport's shoreline has an unusual new addition: an electricity-generating machine.
The C-Cell is a four-metre high curved paddle.
It's been installed by local company MPM North West Ltd, funded by the Renewable Energy Test and Education Centre at the University of Cumbria.
They claim it could double the energy which can currently be captured from ocean waves
Plans for a 21 turbine wind farm near Lockerbie have been refused.
The Scottish Energy Minister Fergus Ewing ruled out the plans. He said: "We want to see the right developments in the right places. That is why I have refused permission for the proposed wind farm at Newfield, which would have brought unacceptable impacts on the landscape.”
AES, the company behind the plans for the wind farm at Newfield, says it's disappointed as the site could have contributed to Scotland's target of creating all its electricity from renewable sources.
The farm was expected to support 100 jobs and generate contracts worth £26 million to the Scottish economy.
The National Farmers Union of Scotland is urging the UK government to think again over a cut in support for some types of renewable energy.
Anaerobic Digesters are ideal for farmers, because they convert waste products into energy.
There's been a reduction in the tariff payed to people who produce energy in this way and the NFU Scotland fears that could discourage farmers from installing so-called AD plants.
Fiona McIlwraith went to a farm in Dumfries and Galloway which is building one of the first plants in Scotland.
The National Farmers Union of Scotland is urging Westminster to restore support to a new type of renewable energy.
Anaerobic Digesters use waste product to produce electricity, however the Government have reduced the tariff scheme and NFU Scotland says farms will suffer unless the original tariff is reinstated.
Residents who say they've been driven into fuel poverty by the fitting of inefficient heating systems are taking their fight to the Secretary of State for Local Government Eric Pickles.
In February, Lookaround reported on the plight of dozens of people in Longtown who had complained to Riverside Housing Association.
Two months later and many of those complaints are still outstanding. Riverside say they're working with tenants to resolve the issues.

An offshore wind farm in Cumbria will be extended as part of a government green scheme.
The expansion of the Walney Offshore Wind Farm is one of eight projects across the UK involved in the Electricity Market Reform programme.
The programme is expected to create 8,500 jobs across the UK by 2020 and will start generating power in 2017.
The programme will help the UK meet the renewable energy target and lower emissions.
Since 2010 the share of renewable electricity in the UK has doubled.
The Electricity Market Reform programme is expected to deliver 30 per cent of renewable energy in 2020.
A proposal to build the tallest wind turbines in Cumbria near Killington Lake will go to a public inquiry.
They would be 132 metres high, the height of the viewing platform at the top of Blackpool Tower.
