Demand for renewable energy has increased year by year.This growth is particularly due to the increased demand in bioenergy such as plant mass for electricity generation. Since bioenergy sources can be transported, the UK imports much of its biomass for energy generation. Therefore the distribution of renewable fuel use in the UK sees a majority coming from Bioenergy.
