Bio-energy is the most important and versatile renewable energy option globally, yet is surrounded by confusion and controversy. This book provides a comprehensive and readable assessment of bio-energy fuels and technologies, with 30 real world case studies and many practical tips. The author concludes that a fifth of UK energy could come from this source - three times that from nuclear power.
The book proves that bio-energy really saves carbon and suggests that Green NGOs have 'lost the plot' on bio-energy. From Craig Venter to Richard Branson, from whisky sourced biofuels to the regeneration of stately homes using their won woodlands, this is a visionary book rooted in the real world. Described as "brilliant" by the respected editor of En-Agri newsletter.
