DECC publishes Q&A on the carbon impacts of forest biomass
The Department of Energy and Climate change has published an advisory note which aims to assist the interpretation of the carbon impacts analysis set out in the 2012 UK Bioenergy Strategy.
The note sets out answers to common technical questions raised by stakeholders in the field.
It provides detailed answers to the following questions:
How were the carbon impacts of using forest biomass for bioenergy in the UK assessed?
Does the use of wood from UK forests for bioenergy result in low or high GHG emissions compared to burning fossil fuels?
Does the use of harvested wood exclusively for bioenergy lead to higher emissions than the use of fossil fuel for energy generation?
