We have access to in excess of 2 million acres of land under management in the UK alone and its ability to source sustainable supplies of biomass spans the globe.
The UK Bioenergy Strategy recognises that excluding biomass from the energy mix would significantly increase the cost of decarbonising the UK’s energy system – an increase estimated by a recent ETI analysis at £44 billion.
