Agri Business Blog: Campaign launched to back biomass


The Renewable Energy Association has set up a campaign urging government to support the generation of heat and power from biomass.

Timed to coincide with the Renewables Obligation banding review, the “Back Biomass” campaign says future support and policy must be sufficient to stimulate investment in biomass technology.

A number of large projects - including two from Drax Power - are in the pipeline, and provided support levels are maintained, they should make a big contribution to meeting UK renewables targets, the REA’s Gaynor Hartnell said. See
