National Policy Statement an "incentive" for sustainable development
Green Energy Parks (GEP), whose zero-landfill EnergyPark Peterborough gained planning approval from the Government in October 2009, has welcomed the Department for Energy and Climate Change's National Policy Statement for renewable energy infrastructure. The document sets out the criteria by which applications to the Infrastructure Planning Commission should be considered.
The GEP team commended the added weight given to applications for biomass projects that are able to minimise the amount of residue that is wasted following combustion. Chris Williams, managing director of Green Energy Parks, commented that:
"At the heart of our philosophy has always been a desire to extract the maximum possible value from waste that would otherwise be sent to landfill. We have always seen waste as an asset and by harnessing state of the art plasma vitrification technology we are able to convert output residues from biomass gasification into reusable products. By incentivising efficient projects like ours through the National Policy Statement, the Government will make positive steps towards securing a more sustainable future for the UK."
