The author discusses the issues associated with the growing demand for biomass in Great Britain. He cites that the demand covers woodfuel for domestic use and for large-scale power generation. He mentions the plans of several companies to develop biofuel plants in response to the growing demand. He cites that the possible sources for wood to produce biomass energy include recycling of waste wood, the production of wood from forestry and enhanced woodland management.
