|Summary text/ abstract||The UK Bioenergy Strategy set a clear direction for future bioenergy policy, including commitments to only support sustainable bioenergy that delivers genuine greenhouse gas emission reductions. These principles are now being undermined by Government's proposals to continue to subsidise large-scale power generation from wood. The Government's own analysis, provided to Princeton academic Timothy Searchinger1, shows that the use of whole trees in this way would increase greenhouse gas emissions by at least 49% compared to using coal over 40 years. Yet, Government's current proposals, to continue to subsidise biomass power under the Renewables Obligation, do not account for this by distinguishing between different sources of biomass. They are therefore likely to actually increase greenhouse gas emissions.|
