Decarbonising the UK’s heat network is one of the biggest energy challenges we face. The role of bioenergy, including biomass, in helping meet net zero heat emissions, has been convincingly outlined by the Renewable Energy Association’s (REA) Bioenergy Strategy report this week.
The recent wave of climate change activism and the UK Government’s commitment to a net zero future have increased the pressure on business and industry to decarbonise.
There has probably never been a more interesting time to work in energy.
– New heat storage system will store heat in a quarter of the space of conventional systems
– Businesses will be provided with cheaper heat for 20 years
– Flexible generation plants which transmit the heat will be 90% efficient
With air conditioning use rising in offices and homes throughout Europe how do our energy systems keep up with increased demand?
Whilst we continue to create energy milestones, such as the UK not using any coal to generate electricity for 18 days, renewable heat generation is not making the same headlines.
Heat Contract reduces energy bills and increases sale for Co-operative Food Store.
Biomass could play a pivotal role in heat decarbonisation and help the UK meet its renewable heat targets, AMP Clean Energy said today. Around 6% of heat in the UK currently comes from renewable sources, but EU targets require it to double to 12% by 2020. The Renewable Energy Association (REA) report ‘Bioenergy in the […]
As young activists from around the world strike for climate action today, I’ve been focussing on the upcoming sustainable energy and climate change programme which I am leading on.
It was a record breaking 2019 Easter weekend with the whole country revelling in end to end sunshine. Fewer people would have been aware that the 90 hours of continuous generation with no coal on the system was also record breaking.
