Defra & DTI miss an opportunity with Biomass Task Force response
Submitted: 27 April 2006
The Renewable Energy Association has described the Government’s proposals for developing renewable heat and power supplies from biomass sources as a missed opportunity.
Graham Meeks, Head of Heat at the REA, said:

“Eighteen months after the Government launched the Biomass Task Force we are still waiting for new measures to drive real growth in the market for renewable heat supplies. The opportunity to deliver real progress in tackling climate change, lift households out of fuel poverty and create sustainable jobs in the rural economy is still being squandered.”

Graham Meeks called on the Government to move quickly to implement an overarching policy that directly rewards the environmental, security and social benefits of supplying heat from renewable sources.
