By providing extra income for landowners, biomass is helping massive advances in international forest cover and protections against deforestation.
Biomass already provides 22% of the UK’s renewable power. It directly replaces coal, which is a big part of the reason the UK is breaking records in removing coal from the power system.
Biomass is flexible – it can be ramped up or down depending on demand. This makes it cheaper and easier to have more renewables like solar and wind – a perfect back-up.
