Cash boost for biomass fuel for heat and electricity generation – Friday 6 June 2008

Farmers, foresters and biomass producers can apply for up to £200,000 each under a new round of grants from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

The Bio-energy Infrastructure Scheme aims to support the biomass industry in England by helping those supplying biomass fuel for use in heat and electricity generation. All projects must be based in England and must supply the biomass to end-users in Great Britain.

The deadline for applications is 5 August 2008 for applications from businesses and 5 September 2008 from producer groups. To receive an application form, contact the Bio-energy Infrastructure Scheme Helpline by telephone: 01355 593800, or email: help@beis.org.uk (opens new window).
