The UK urgently needs to find additional sources by which electricity generation can be achieved as production from fossil fuels declines.
Generating energy from biomass crops is an important component in UK Government strategic energy objectives. Biomass crops are therefore clearly a likely important option for consideration in any sustainable development of renewable energy.
These crops have the dual benefits of providing CO2 ‘neutral’ sources of energy and alternative non-food uses for land, with corresponding environmental and socio-economic benefits on a local and national scale. NIAB EMR is a facilitator in the evaluation and development of production systems for renewable perennial crops to support and aid government expectations for this important sector.
