Bioenergy/ HVO

It is unfortunate that the SNP-Green coalition has failed to say where they will be getting the money required to decarbonise homes. Their actions risk saddling homeowners and businesses with a bill of over £30 billion.
Regarding HVO, my colleagues in the Scottish Conservatives continue to press the Government on whether or not it has considered the use of renewable liquid fuel alternatives, such as HVO, as a solution when replacing gas boilers, and, if so, whether it plans to provide incentives to homeowners who make such a change.
The response from the Government was that further research is required before it could commit to any particular biofuel. A Bioenergy Action Plan in 2023 which will set out a strategic framework for how the available biomass resources and technologies can be used to best effect.
