Category: bioenergy

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


This month has seen a lot of news about the UK’s renewable energy, with records tumbling, technologies being proposed and tariff schemes undergoing change. As of the 31st of March, of this year, we have bid a fond farewell to the UK’s Renewable Obligation. Since 2002, this scheme has been a source of income for renewable power generators through the sale of RO Certificates to larger generators, and during that time the share of low-carbon energy generation in the UK has increased........
