Davey admits discriminatory cap on dedicated biomass


In Ed Davey’s statement on Wednesday, following John Hayes’ remarks in the Mail and the Telegraph, he stated “There are no targets - or caps - for individual renewable technologies”.


However, questioned by the Back Biomass campaign, Davey admitted that there is in fact a cap on dedicated biomass, due to the need for his department to control costs.


The cap on dedicated biomass is damaging investor confidence – delaying proposed projects and meaning that billions of pounds of key infrastructure investment and thousands of jobs are hanging in limbo.
