Bioenergy Strategy

This series brings together all documents relating to Bioenergy Strategy

This strategy sets out the Coalition Government’s approach to securing the benefits of bioenergy. It is the result of extensive analysis by a Cross Government team.

In considering how to secure these benefits we have examined the wide range of evidence on the availability of sustainably-produced biomass feedstocks to UK users, the likely carbon impacts of bioenergy compared to possible alternative uses of the biomass resource; and the role of biomass in the energy system compared to other choices for low-carbon energy.

The strategy also builds on analysis used for the Committee on Climate Change’s Bioenergy Review and includes the Coalition Government’s response to that review.
