Description“Bioenergy – if it’s done sustainably – can really contribute,” says Andrew Welfle, a research fellow at the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research at The University of Manchester. “We have carried out much research working with industry, government, and academic partners scrutinizing its sustainability. In the vast majority of scenarios, bioenergy can provide energy with emissions far below those of coal or natural gas.”
