ETI recommends increased biomass production and the development of BECCS to cost-effectively decarbonise the UK energy system. In a report released today, we have reviewed our 10 year bioenergy programme and set out a vision for bioenergy in a low carbon UK energy system. Earlier this month, we published an update to our Clockwork and Patchwork scenarios, two plausible pathways for the UK to meet its 2050 climate targets cost-effectively. Our modelling analysis identified bioenergy as economically important to a low carbon transition. This transition can happen without large scale bioenergy but it will be more expensive (potentially up to £200bn).
