DECC to host information sessions on Biomass Suppliers List

Following the launch of the RHI Biomass Suppliers List (BSL) on April 30, DECC is planning a series of promotional events.

Now open to applications from wood fuel producers, DECC is actively asking for participation from those involved in the biomass sector and will assist those who wish to apply.

The programme includes:

Webchat, Thursday 22 May
DECC will host a webchat to provide an opportunity for suppliers and other stakeholders to find out more about the Biomass Suppliers List. Further information on how to participate in the webchat, including a web link, will be circulated nearer the time. In the meantime, please let us know if you are interested by emailing

A programme of supplier focused workshops
These workshops will give attendees an overview of the Biomass Suppliers List, as well as a change to ask detailed questions and receive practical information about the applications process.

Workshops will be held across the UK as follows:

Cardiff, Thursday 29 May, 1pm – 5pm. Cardiff University, Birchwood House
London, Friday 30 May, 9am – 1pm. Department of Energy and Climate Change, 3 Whitehall Place
Edinburgh, Tuesday 3 June, 12.30 – 4.30pm. Queen Margaret University

If you would like to attend one of these workshops, please email by Wednesday 21 May, stating your name, organisation and job title.

Places at the workshops are limited, and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. DECC would also ask that you limit requests for places to one person per organisation, in order to allow other organisations to attend. The content will be the same for all three workshops, so DECC does not advise attending more than one. Joining instructions and a more detailed agenda will be provided to confirmed attendees nearer the time.
