High government targets to increase the security of energy supply and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions will result in the growth of the bioenergy sector over the next decade. For the UK to meet its target of achieving a 15% share of renewable energy by 2020, it will require a near 300% increase in renewable energy production, of which bioenergy will contribute around 50%.
