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


We begin on the other side of the Irish Sea: The Republic of Ireland was the last remaining European country that did not have some kind of incentive scheme for renewable heat generation, but the Irish government has now announced a Renewable Energy Support Scheme (RESS).
