It is the first local authority to do so and is calling on other councils to ’embrace hydrogen’ to meet their climate change obligations
It is designed to have an electrical output of 20MW and a thermal firing capacity of 87MW
That’s the call from industry body Scottish Renewables, which suggests a new Heat Networks Bill could see the equivalent of 460,000 homes heated renewably by 2030
WWF Scotland and Vivid Economics say fossil fuel heating must be phased out if the country is to successfully end its contribution to climate change by 2045
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 Science and Technology Committee has slammed the government for ‘unacceptable’ cutbacks and slow progress and set out 10 steps it should take to ensure the goal is met
There has probably never been a more interesting time to work in energy.
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.
It will support projects including renewable energy, energy efficiency as well as electrification of heat and transport
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 […]
