The Renewable Energy Association has launched a campaign urging Government to support biomass heat and power in proposals affecting renewable energy incentives.
The ‘Back Biomass’ campaign aims to highlight to Government the benefits of what they call a “flexible and affordable” technology and consider securing future support for planned projects over the coming months.
Gaynor Hartnell, Chief Executive of the REA, said: “Provided support levels are maintained in the forthcoming banding review, Government can look forward to these plants making their contribution towards meeting the UK’s targets.”
Currently the Government is committed to the Renewables Obligation, which will set support levels for renewable electricity generation and combined heat and power from 2013 to 2017. The REA wants the Government to make decisions that will help the biomass industry get private funding.
