Biomass prices in the heat and electricity sectors in the UK

This report gives the results of two studies carried out in 2009 to estimate the prices paid for biomass by the UK heat and electricity sectors in 2010 and 2020.

In the UK most pellets used for heating are imported and are projected to cost from £182 to £218/odt bulk in 2020. Meanwhile chips for heating are usually sourced domestically and are estimated to cost £111 to £138/odt in 2020.

For the electricity and large CHP sectors cost predictions were impacted by large uncertainty in wholesale power price and government policies.
