GIS-based study reveals UK bioenergy target is achievable

UK: Researchers at the University of East Anglia use GIS mapping to chart supply and demand for bioenergy over the whole of England. This showed that the potential for bioenergy generation exceeds the 2020 UK target. The study, published in Biomass and Bioenergy, is the first to look at this issue on a national scale.

”We found that it is possible, theoretically, to meet all of the targets for bioenergy cultivation in the UK,” says Amy Thomas, the lead author of the study, ”but there are a lot of potential barriers to achieving this.”
