270MW

Orange – consented

475MW

Yellow – planned

1600MW

Total

2345MW

Uk roundwood production

UK Roundwood production


Is burning wood a good idea

Is burning wood a good idea?

  • Drax coal plant 4000MWEmits 22MT CO25500T CO2/MW

  • Eon Lockerbie44MW burns 0.5MTEmits 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

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

  • ROC allocation for new plantingreduce allocation to burnersreallocate 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.
