DECC: 3 British companies have recently been given a boost of £1.34m to test cutting edge designs in bioenergy.  The winning companies - AB systems, AMW IBERS and Natural Synergies - were selected from an initial list of 7 to go through from the project design stage to the testing phase of the Department of Energy and Climate Change’s £2m wetlands biomass to bioenergy competition.
 
As set out in the Government’s 2012 bioenergy strategy, sustainably sourced bioenergy has an important part to play in the UK’s future energy mix, with the potential to contribute around 11% of the UK’s total primary energy demand by 2020.
