Objectives

This project is developing a model linking bio energy crop growth with technology options for logistics, pre-processing and final use as heat, power or transport fuel. It is developing a value chain optimisation framework and is looking at the economic and carbon impact of sustainably developing UK biomass resources whilst converting these to various energy vectors. It is also considering the relevant agronomic, techno-economic and geographic factors associated with the cultivation, collection, processing, transmission and distribution of biomass.

Extract from Press Release dated 19 May 2011:

This is a 9 month long £840,000 Biomass Systems Value Chain Modelling project, which will develop a spatial model linking bio energy crop growth with technology options for logistics, pre-processing and final use as heat, power or transport fuel. The project will develop an economic value chain optimisation framework and look at the carbon impact of sustainably developing UK biomass resources whilst converting these to various energy vectors. It will also consider the relevant agronomic, techno-economic and geographic factors associated with the cultivation, collection, processing, transmission and distribution of biomass

Abstract The development of the BVCM model has been ongoing since the project first started in 2011. The documents published here relate to the intial phases of model development. They do not included later developments and are therefore not representative of the current BVCM model, or in some cases, its findings. For a more recent overview of BVCM and the findings derived from it, readers are encouraged to look at the insights and reports published by the ETI, here: http://www.eti.co.uk/insights and here: http://www.eti.co.uk/library/overview-of-the-etis-bioenergy-value-chain-model-bvcm-capabilities BVCM is now managed by the Energy Systems Catapult (ESC). Any questions about the ESC should be directed to them at: info@es.catapult.org.uk

How many undocumented children live in London?
Estimating the numbers of migrants in the UK is notoriously difficult, especially those with an irregular migration status who may not be counted in official government statistics. It is not for nothing that the task has been described as counting the uncountable. However, information about the population of children and young people who are not…20/01/20

PRESS RELEASE: Government deployment stats fail to accurately capture >50kW PV systems - Jack Dobson-Smith
The STA continues to call on the Government to address serious flaws in the accuracy of its photovoltaic deployment data following the publication of its latest statistics, which state that solar deployment in 2019 was down by over 60MW compared to 2018, suggesting the slowest year for the industry since 2010. [1] However, the statistics fail to accurately capture PV systems sized above 50kW, with no update to the ‘50 kW to ≤ 5 MW’ category since March 2019, and only one large-scale site added to ‘> 25 MW’ category in 2019, a 34.7MWp array completed in December by GRIDSERVE. ... \nRead More\nThe post PRESS RELEASE: Government deployment stats fail to accurately capture >50kW PV systems appeared first on Solar Trade Association.

PRESS RELEASE: Solar industry hails Government plans to run new clean power auctions - Jack Dobson-Smith
Today the STA has welcomed Government plans to hold a new round of clean power auctions, set to take place in 2021, for solar and onshore wind. A new Contracts for Difference auction will enable greater deployment of the cleanest, cheapest forms of power generation today, cutting costs to consumers by £200m-£300m annually. [1] The policy is one of the STA’s key priorities for 2020. [2] Chief Executive Chris Hewett said: “Today’s announcement marks a major shift in the right direction for Government policy on onshore renewables, and a welcome opportunity for the solar industry.” “New clean power auctions for ... \nRead More\nThe post PRESS RELEASE: Solar industry hails Government plans to run new clean power auctions appeared first on Solar Trade Association.
