Bio-energy Capital Grants Scheme

legislation type Executive
Passed in 2002
Supports biomass-fuelled heat, and CHP projects in the industrial, commercial and community sectors in England. Six rounds of funding have been provided since the Scheme was launched in 2002. Earlier rounds focused support on large-scale biomass power stations. The emphasis in later rounds has been to support small- and medium-sized projects.

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.
