A new report summarising over five years of work commissioned by the Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) has concluded that the UK should be capable of growing around 1.4 million hectares of second generation bioenergy crops by 2050.
It’s been talked about for several years now but it appears that there will be a firm announcement about the launch of a Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) in Ireland – soon. That’s the news from this weeks Energy in Agriculture conference and trade fair that took place at Gurteen College in Tipperary. We were there to talk about the UK perspective on biomass sustainability and plug our compliance scheme the Sustainable Fuel Register (SFR).
The Renewable Heat Incentive reforms that were originally laid before parliament and then withdrawn in mid-March have not yet been re-laid and latest news suggests that this may not be until after the summer recess.
