Bio-energy Capital Grants Scheme
The Bio-energy Capital Grants Scheme promotes the efficient use of biomass for energy, and in particular the use of energy crops by stimulating the early deployment of biomass-fuelled heat and electricity generation projects. It awards capital grants towards the cost of installing equipment in complete biomass-fuelled projects in the industrial, commercial and community sectors.
The main policy aims of the Scheme are to:
- Deliver capacity to create an initial market for biomass fuel, installation equipment and services
- To stimulate the UK renewables industry
- Provide learning benefits that will accelerate the industry and achieve more efficient and cost effective use of biomass for heat and electricity.
