UK sets sustainability standards for solid biomass, biogas


The U.K. Department of Energy & Climate Change has announced that starting in 2015, the biomass industry must show its fuel is sustainable to receive financial support. According to information released by the DECC, all electricity generators of 1 megawatt (MW) capacity or higher that use solid biomass or biogas feedstock will be required to demonstrate that they are meeting certain sustainability criteria in order to claim support under the Renewables Obligation (RO). The DECC estimates the 1 MW threshold will cover approximately 98 percent of all biomass power generation in the U.K.
