Crops for Energy has produced the first holistic study looking at the potential contribution of woody energy crops to south west regional renewable energy targets, greenhouse gas reductions, economic development and wider environmental benefits.

CAP Reform 2014-2020 C4E’s Position Statement

The current Common Agricultural Policy negotiations present real opportunities for the energy crops sector. Crops for Energy are arguing for energy crops to be an eligible crop diversification option and SRC to be considered for ecological focus areas.

Why we need an Energy Crops Scheme 3

The Energy Crops Scheme (ECS) closes to new applications at the end of August 2013. Crops for Energy has produced a position paper which sets out the need for an improved policy framework for the woody energy crops sector as well as a third round of the ECS.
