Yellow – planned

1600MW

Total

2345MW

What will they burn?

Status MW MT

Running 270 3.0

Consented 475 5.5

Planned 1600 18.5

Is burning wood a good idea?

  • Drax coal plant 4000MW Emits 22MT CO2 5500T CO2/MW

  • Eon Lockerbie 44MW burns 0.5MT Emits 0.3MT CO2 7600T CO2/MW 40% extra/MW


Uk restocking
UK restocking

But FC restocking is only 70% of felled area

Private sector is only 50% of felled area

20% of restocking is hardwoods


Uk new planting

In 2008

6.7kHa Hardwood

0.9kHa Softwood


Levels of subsidy for biomass
Levels of subsidy for biomass

Non CHP plants – 1.5 ROC = £80/MWh

CHP plants – 2.0 ROC = £107/MWh

Current plants £189m

Consented plants £332m

Planned plants £1120m

Total £1.6bn per annum


Levels of subsidy for forestry
Levels of subsidy for forestry

  • £72m in 2008

  • And it’s hardwood, native woodland, environmental, community woodlands – not rapid carbon sequestering woodlands – shrubberies!


What could be done
What could be done?

  • Tax breaks for forestry

What could be done?

  • ROC allocation for new planting reduce allocation to burners reallocate to planters


What will happen to sawmills
What will happen to sawmills?

Roundwood prices will become more volatile and rise rapidly if the supply of other biomass is interrupted.


What will happen to sawmills1
What will happen to sawmills?

Roundwood prices will become more volatile and rise rapidly if the supply of other biomass is interrupted.

Sawnwood prices will not rise to match this as imports will easily replace domestic production.

What will happen to sawmills?

Roundwood prices will become more volatile and rise rapidly if the supply of other biomass is interrupted.

Sawnwood prices will not rise to match this as imports will easily replace domestic production.

Sawmills that close as a result of this are unlikely to be reopened as the investment will be too great and the returns too small.
