NNFCC News Review: Bioenergy Issue 75, June 2018

Category: bioenergy

Each month we review the latest news and select key announcements and commentary from across the bioenergy sector.


Here in the UK, it would appear (touch wood) that summer has finally arrived, bringing with it the usual two weeks of sun, too late for the bank holidays and too early for the time we have booked off work. It has also brought about a calmness in the weather, which is not good news for wind power. With no generation from wind over the first week of June, biomass power has been brought to the fore of renewables generation. Renewables such as wind and solar are clearly reliant on certain weather conditions, which means they are responsible for most of the fluctuations in renewables generation in the UK. Biomass, however, can generate around the clock, providing the solid foundation upon which the UK’s renewable energy generation can be built.
