Woodfuel supply – new rules - May 2014

Woodfuel supply – new rules to qualify for the Renewable Heat Incentive

Many of RH & RW Clutton’s clients are involved in supplying woodfuel for biomass boilers, either as self- suppliers or selling to a wider market.

This week Government took steps to ensure that the carbon emissions associated with the delivery of woodfuel are accounted for: later this year claimants for the Renewable Heat Incentive will need to show they have purchase sustainable woodfuel.

Woodland owners are being invited to register their biomass fuels, which is free but involves completing an assessment of the operations to show how much carbon is used.

For most local woodfuel supplies these emissions will be tiny, but EU regulations require that to qualify for renewable incentives one must prove that the operation saves at least 60% of carbon emissions compared to the average.

The website for registration is at https://www.gov.uk/government/news/register-your-biomass-fuel-as-sustainable
