Biomass drive for Scotland
A biomass action plan for Scotland has been published by the Scottish Executive which includes £3M of extra funding for renewable energy projects across the country.
The plan includes greater use of the forestry and agricultural sectors, together with grant support to encourage greater use of biomass products. The extra £3M for the biomass support scheme brings the total value of the grant scheme to £10.5M.
“Demand for a share of our biomass support scheme has been so high that I have added additional funding,” said Deputy First Minister Nicol Stephen. “Dozens of successful projects will be announced shortly and will reap the benefits of this green energy investment.”
