Bioenergy must double UK mix share to safeguard security

The Government must ensure that bioenergy generation doubles to 16% of the UK's energy mix by 2032, if energy security is to be safeguarded and climate targets to be met.

That is the key call to action in a new report published today (5 September) by the Renewable Energy Association (REA).

According to the report, bioenergy, which currently represents 7.4% of the UK’s primary energy supply mix, must play a “crucial” role in decarbonisation as sectors such as transport and heavy industry rely increasingly on electrified technologies and systems.
