New support measures for Scottish biomass

7 February 2013

Responding to the latest news on support levels for 15MW biomass projects, Stephanie Clark, Policy Officer for Scottish Renewables, said: 

“By increasing the threshold limit of electricity-only biomass stations this will ensure that Scotland has additional capacity for biomass production. The response from Scottish Government today also increases certainty surrounding support for biomass as we look towards introducing more renewable heat in Scotland as part of combined heat and power plants.

“Biomass can play an increasingly important role in Scotland’s energy mix and will contribute to wider efforts to reduce the net carbon emissions from heat and power which is afterall, the largest source of our energy needs."
