Woody Wales at the forefront of energy production

In Wales, UK, Elin Jones, rural affairs minister, has revealed a multi-million pound scheme, called the Wood Energy Business Scheme 2, which could see Wales sitting at the top of wood-to-energy production in Britain.

The scheme is managed by Forestry Commission Wales on behalf of the Welsh Assembly Government, and will provide £7.8 million (€8.6 million) in European funding. This financial support will make it possible for biofuels to be produced from wood in Wales.

Jones explained that the scheme will aid companies in converting biomass into renewable heat and power.
