Bioenergy Industry Support in the West Midlands

If your business is based in the West Midlands you can benefit from free expert support from the European Bioenergy Research Institute (EBRI).

Bioenergy in the West Midlands

Bioenergy is set to contribute more than 50% of the UK’s required increase in renewable energy by 2020 and in the process will create more than £12billion of new business opportunities. With no coastline to deploy off-shore wind or marine energy, the West Midlands stands to become a national ‘hotspot’ for the growing bioenergy sector. The region’s engineering, manufacturing, logistics and environmental sectors are lining up to take advantage of this multi-billion pound opportunity.

How EBRI can help your business

EBRI has been awarded funding from the European Regional Development Fund to help businesses in the West Midlands make the most of this low carbon opportunity. From sole-traders to multinational firms, more than 100 regional companies have already benefited from the free support available from EBRI. 

Workshops and seminars

EBRI hosts an active schedule of topical workshops and seminars for regional businesses. If you are based in the West Midlands, you can attend these events to gain insider knowledge on the latest facts, figures and expert opinion across a range of bioenergy topics. You will also meet other regional companies working in this sector. 

Feasibility studies

Are you thinking of installing a new biomass energy system? Or considering making an investment in a new biomass technology? EBRI’s experts can provide you with free feasibility support to model and optimise your business case for investing in new technologies and energy systems.

Demonstrator technology

If you want to know more about bioenergy technologies and what they could mean for your business why not visit EBRI’s world-class research and demonstration facility at Aston University? From industrial-scale pyrolysis and gasification technology through to micro-scale reactors and analytical tools, EBRI provides a chance to see the latest ground-breaking innovations ’in action’

Funding for innovation, research and development 

Developing new bioenergy technologies and processes requires significant investment in R&D, testing and analysis. EBRI can support your company to apply for collaborative research funding to develop new products, processes and technologies and take them to market.
