Biomass branded as 'inefficient'

Plans to supplement Britain's electricity needs by burning large quantities of wood are inefficient and put rural jobs at risk, Scottish Energy Minister Fergus Ewing will tell UK ministers.

Mr Ewing is to meet the UK Energy Minister Charles Hendry and host a meeting with bioenergy stakeholders.

He will urge Mr Hendry to follow the Scottish Government's lead and abandon subsidy for large-scale woody biomass in plants which produce electricity only.
