Designed specifically for entrepreneurs and business leaders, this tailor-made course can help you transfer knowledge and skills directly to your business.

Ambitious government targets to increase the security of energy supply and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions will drive growth of the bioenergy, energy-from-waste, energy systems and bioproducts sectors over the next ten years.

According to the Committee on Climate Change, bioenergy alone could provide up to 15% of UK energy demand in a low carbon economy by 2050. It is now the largest contributing renewable technology in the UK, providing 7.4% of primary energy supply.
