Scotland ‘could be poised for a clean heat revolution’

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

Scottish Government ‘should invest at least £500m every year to decarbonise’

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

Guest Blog: Richard Burrell – Time to turn up the heat on decarbonisation targets

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.

Net zero: UK will miss carbon target without ‘urgent action’

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.

Guest Blog: Richard Burrell – Finding a pathway to much-needed UK heat decarbonisation

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.

Swedish energy firm Vattenfall issues €500m green bond

It will support projects including renewable energy, energy efficiency as well as electrification of heat and transport

Biomass can help deliver much-needed UK heat decarbonisation

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 […]

UK going net-zero ‘impossible without bioenergy’

The Renewable Energy Association says the sustainable use of bioenergy is vital to the UK meeting its legally-binding Fifth Carbon Budget
