UK biofuels in transport rose to 4.1% in 2018 while bio-based power generation rose 12%

April 3, 2019 |

In the UK, liquid biofuels accounted for 4.1 per cent of gasoline and diesel consumed in road transport in 2018, up from 3.1 per cent in 2017. Generation from bioenergy was up by 12 per cent on 2017, to a record 35.6 TWh, partly as a result of power stations converting to plant biomass following the conversion from coal to biomass at both the Drax and Lynemouth power stations. The output from bioenergy and waste and wind, solar and hydro is now nearly 13 times higher than coal, notable as coal output was higher as recently as 2012.
