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.
