Government unveils renewable energy project

Government unveils renewable energy project
The government has launched round three of its Bio-energy Infrastructure Scheme.

Businesses, local authorities and charities across England are being called on to bid for grants of up to £1.5 million to fund the development of biomass energy generation.

Energy and climate change minister Lord Hunt explained that businesses need more encouragement to invest in renewable energy sources.

He said: "We have a target to get 15 per cent of all energy from renewable sources by 2020 and biomass can make a significant contribution.

"We funded 75 projects in round two of this scheme and we will continue to work to ensure that the supply chain is in place to create a thriving bio-energy market in England, which is good for the environment and good for business."

Grants are restricted to businesses operating in England and for projects that are scheduled for completion by March 31st 2011.

Applicants have until February 26th 2010 to bid for funding, however, the deadline may be extended if the response proves positive.ADNFCR-1235-ID-19475027-ADNFCR
