Co-firing Activity

Volume 447: debated on Thursday 22 June 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry (1) if he will ensure that energy crops continue to be a mandatory component of co-firing activity from April 2009. (79541)

(2) if he will re-instate the co-firing cap to the 25 per cent. level that was in place prior to 1 April.

Co-firing is being reviewed as part of the ongoing Energy Review. All options are open for consideration at this stage and no decisions have yet been made. We anticipate that we will make an announcement on co-firing as part of the Energy Review announcement later in the summer.

Any changes to the co-firing rules would require full statutory consultation.
