is seen as a major contributor to the delivery of the 2020 targets for
electricity, heat and transport fuels. However there has been a lack of
reliable data on what wider benefits this potentially significant industry
could bring to the UK economy.
this, employment potential in the bioenergy sector is expected to exceed that
in other renewable energy technologies due to the additional element of
feedstock production, supply, handling and logistics. This is an added benefit
that appears underestimated at present but offers a valuable opportunity for UK
economic growth and job creation.
This study estimated the
possible number of UK jobs in the biomass combustion (for heat and power) and
anaerobic digestion sectors by 2020, based on deployment projections taken from
DECC’s ‘UK Renewable Energy Roadmap’ (July 2011).
These estimates of employment were derived using data from
previous studies alongside new modelling, and were broken down by jobs in:
feedstock supply, plant design and construction, and plant operation. However
due to the lack of available data and difficulty in projecting the market for
plant components, jobs in the manufacturing sector were not included.
