On Tuesday 26th October, LC Energy hosted 14 members from the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial strategy (BEIS) on behalf of the UK Pellet Council (UKPC).
BEIS is a ministerial department of the UK Government, supported by 42 agencies and public bodies who work towards tackling climate change, unleashing innovation and making the UK a great place to work and do business.
The UKPC launched the Biomass Heat Works! campaign in response to the government’s new 2050 target of net-zero carbon emissions. Biomass Heat Works! is the voice of the UK’s biomass heat industry. More information on the Biomass Heat Works! Campaign can be found here: https://www.biomassheatworks.co.uk/.
The day led by Mark Lebus, Chair of the UKPC and Managing Director of LC Energy, was a fact-finding mission that involved visiting 5 rural off grid biomass users, demonstrating how biomass is the most appropriate renewable technology, to decarbonise heat in rural and off grid areas.
The day delivered a clear message to the Government; to create a more tailored, fit-for-purpose heat decarbonisation policy specifically for rural off-grid properties that better (fully) supports biomass as the most suitable solution.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank BEIS for attending the tour.
