An initiative of The Carbon Trust to promote the more widespread use of biomass heat–which is more sustainable and produces lower carbon emissions than conventional heating methods. Biomass heating technologies are already being used extensively in countries like Finland and Austria, with more European countries trying to follow their lead. The UK’s Carbon Trust states in their website: “The Biomass Heat Accelerator aims to catalyse growth of the medium-scale commercial and industrial biomass heating market by reducing costs, demonstrating best practice and addressing supply chain risks.”
