Welsh Assembly reveals biomass plan

Welsh Assembly reveals biomass plan
The Welsh Assembly has announced a new plan to generate electricity from biomass to reduce reliance on fossil fuels.

Environment minister Jane Davidson announced the Bioenergy Action Plan yesterday (February 24th) and outlined the Assembly's goal of using biomass to provide 20 percent of the country's current electricity needs by 2020.

Biomass will also provide three percent of usable heat energy, with both components expected to cut carbon emissions by three million tonnes per year and create 1,000 new jobs.

The Assembly explained that the biomass will be obtained from sustainable sources and any carbon produced from the growing, harvesting and processing of organic matter will be taken in to consideration.

Ms Davidson said: "Climate change is a reality we have to face and exploiting a mix of available energy resources is vital. Biomass has the potential to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, whilst at the same time cutting our carbon emissions."
