An ETI Perspective - Increasing UK biomass production through more productive use of land

UK-grown biomass can deliver genuine, system-level, greenhouse gas savings.Planting around 1.4 Mha of second generation (non-food) bioenergy crops, such as Miscanthus, Short Rotation Coppice (SRC) willow and Short Rotation Forestry (SRF), by the 2050s would make a significant contribution to delivering a cost-effective, low carbon energy system. This is equivalent to ~7.5% of the total agricultural area of the UK.Steadily increasing the area of bioenergy crops in the UK (averaging around 30-35 kha/yr of new...
