The event

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy’s Energy Innovation Portfolio are considering a programme of work on bioenergy feedstock innovation. The Department is currently looking to procure the first stage of this programme, which will be a feasibility study.

This feasibility study will last five months and will be procured through the Heat Networks and Electricity Generation Assets Dynamic Purchasing System. It will examine the key relevant bioenergy feedstock supply chains for the UK, identify the carbon impact and costs of the process steps, consider locational differences and analyse the land manager perspective that would identify which innovation types would significantly improve the relative economic benefit of feedstock planting. The purpose of the study is to identify innovation opportunities that would provide significant contributions to cost and greenhouse gas emission reduction, as well as improve profitability for land managers. It will also assess UK industry’s capacity to innovate in this sector, with a view to launch a subsequent innovation competition as part of the Energy Innovation Programme. This event is a supplier engagement day.
