UK Failing on Renewable Biomass?

May 14, 2004 [SolarAccess.com] The UK’s Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution (RCEP) recently charged the UK Government of failing to promote the use of renewable biomass energy. Speaking at the launch of the RCEP report “Biomass as a renewable energy source” the Commission’s Chair Tom Blundell said, “The use of biomass energy has benefits not only for climate change but also offers new opportunities for UK agriculture and forestry and increases the security of the UK’s energy supply — but the [Government] policies so far have failed to integrate the supply chain and support viable technologies. I am disappointed that energy from biomass has not developed as quickly in the UK as elsewhere in Europe”.
