The Scottish Executive has now officially launched its £7.5 million Scottish Biomass Support Scheme. The scheme provides grants to support supply chain, heat, electricity and CHP installations and is open to a range of organisations from producer groups to businesses. All grant monies must be spent by March 2008.
Further information, application forms and guidance notes can be found on the Scottish Executive website:
The scheme is aimed at promoting biomass (primarily woodfuel) in Scotland. Support will fall into 2 key categories: (1) support for supply chain infrastructure directly related to developing the woodfuel/biomass supply chain, (2) support for biomass installations including eligible kit/pipe work and boiler plant.
Applications must be received by the Scheme Administration team by 17.00 on Friday 2nd February 2007. Grant letters will be issues in early April 2007.
