We recognise the important role of energy from waste in promoting clean growth, decarbonisation and reducing waste to landfill, but it must not compete with greater recycling, reuse and prevention.

We provide support for Energy from Waste with Combined Heat and Power through the Contract for Difference and Renewable Heat Incentive schemes, but we do not provide support for energy generation alone as it is economically viable without support
