ETI seeks partners for a project to explore the future of biomass logistics in the UK

The Energy Technologies Institute is seeking partners for a new bioenergy project which aims to improve understanding of the future of biomass logistics in the UK.

They say:

"ETI’s whole energy system analysis shows that bioenergy can play a significant and valuable role in a future long term low carbon UK energy system. Delivering the greatest value from bioenergy depends on the UK’s ability to source and distribute sufficient biomass from sustainable sources, either domestic or imported.

"By developing infrastructure pathways for different bioenergy scenarios out to 2050, the project aims to identify key decision points and the actions that would need to be taken to support the sector’s development out to 2050. In particular the project is seeking to identify those ‘scenario-resilient’ actions without which the infrastructure required would not keep pace with demand for bioenergy.

"These infrastructure pathways will also take into consideration how the biomass logistics infrastructure has developed to date and will identify lessons that can be learned from the development of other relevant sectors such as oil, coal and other commodities."
