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.
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.
The Renewable Energy Association has called on policymakers to ensure these technologies fulfil their potential as valuable tools to decarbonise the economy
The Wensleydale Creamery in Yorkshire has signed a deal to send its waste to the Leeming biogas plant, where it will be converted into energy
The Renewable Energy Association says the sustainable use of bioenergy is vital to the UK meeting its legally-binding Fifth Carbon Budget
Dr Ana-Maria Cortes, Business Research Associate at Energy Systems, and Dr Paula Blanco, Lecturer in Chemical Engineering at Aston University, will be discussing this issue at TESS 2019
Bioenergy is the little-known leader of British renewables. That was the declaration made by the REA following the first instalment of its Bioenergy Strategy Review.
The Renewable Energy Association has launched a review into the future of bioenergy and is seeking views on its potential
It will capture a tonne of CO2 a day from the gases produced when power is generated using biomass at Drax Power Station
It is forecast to remain the largest renewable source due to its widespread use in heat and transport
