  • Critically appraise and update the estimates for each UK-derived biomass feedstock presented in the aforementioned CCC study; and

  • Produce a forecast of the total sustainable primary bioenergy (and therefore the TWhpa of renewable gas) which will be available from UK-derived feedstock through to 2050.

  • The primary scope relates to waste and biomass material which can be converted thermally to renewable gas, but will also report on potential volumes of gas from Anaerobic digestion
  • Critically appraise and update the estimates for each UK-derived biomass feedstock presented in the aforementioned CCC study; and
  • Produce a forecast of the total sustainable primary bioenergy (and therefore the TWhpa of renewable gas) which will be available from UK-derived feedstock through to 2050.
  • Produce a sensitivity analysis with a clear ‘central’ scenario to be produced for both waste and non-waste feedstocks.
  • To provide an independent report to provide to policy and other stakeholders which demonstrates the volume potential for renewable gas to 2050.
The key successful outcome for this work will be a report which is a robust, independent and up to date assessment of UK bioenergy resource and therefore biomethane potential to inform key stakeholders in the development of policy relating to low carbon heat.

The delivered report must meet the core objectives laid out above.
