  The National Audit has criticised ministers for awarding companies such as SSE, Drax handed benefits to corporate power providers  providers at the expense of consumers by awarding £16.6bn of renewable energy contracts without putting them out to competitive tender according to the Gaurdian newspaper. A parliamentary spending watchdog warns today that the government may have handed benefits to corporate power providers at the expense of consumers by awarding £16.6bn of renewable energy contracts without putting them out to competitive tender. Eight contracts awarded to companies such as SSE and Dong Energy will provide only 5% of the 20% energy reduction target. The criticism from the National Audit Office came as statistics released by the Department of Energy and Climate change showed that a fifth of all electricity was generated in Britain by solar, wind and other green technologies in the first three months of the year to 18.1 terrawatt hours, enough for 15m homes and up 43% on the same period of 2013. The audit office said that it understood the department gave the early green light to five offshore wind farms and three biomass projects to keep up the pace of “green” investments to meet EU energy targets before the introduction of a new “contracts for difference” subsidy regime next spring.

Burning wood produces more emissions that burning coal, says report

by denergi admin
 
  Burning wood to fuel power stations can create as many harmful carbon emissions as burning coal, according to a government report. UK taxpayers subsidise energy firms to burn wood to meet EU renewables targets. But the report from the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) shows sometimes much bigger carbon savings would be achieved by leaving the wood in the forests. This suggests power firms may be winning subsidies for inadvertently making climate change even worse. The report has caused controversy within DECC as it indicates the initial subsidy rules were much too simplistic. The government has now promised to strengthen the regulations on burning wood, and to make standards mandatory. Environmentalists applauded the move but said they wanted to see details and a timetable for the new rules. They insisted that the proposed new regulations must be based on the new document. Whole trees v wood waste Burning biomass – such as wood – is not a zero-pollution option. It creates greenhouse gases to cut and transport the wood, and when the wood is burned. But supporters say that so long as the burned vegetation is replaced by new plants to absorb CO2 that should confer a significant advantage over using fossil fuels. And it counts as renewable energy because new trees soak up the CO2 emitted by the burned trees. The DECC report says a key error in the government’s previous calculations was a failure to acknowledge the different types of impact that can be created in different types of forests when wood is removed to burn. Burning whole logs from natural forests would be counter-productive, the report says, whilst generating power from wood waste that would otherwise be burned at the roadside could provide benefits for the environment overall.
