Bio-energy: not a new sports drink, but a way to tackle climate change

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Oil prices are at an all time high, hitting about US$70 a barrel after hurricane Katrina. The UK government has responded by granting new licences for oil exploration. Wouldn’t it be better to invest in new energy technologies that do not rely on fossil fuels, and that do not contribute to climate change? There are a number of renewable energy technologies available to us now including wind, solar and wave power, but here the focus is the oldest of all: bioenergy.
