With the DECC guidelines for sourcing Biomass very 'loose' it basically means that power companies have a pretty free reign with regards to the material they source and burn.
Not being ones to take this information at face value, we visited the site to see for ourselves (see pics) and sure enough there were stockpiles of thousands of felled trees at the power station which can clearly be seen from outside the perimeter fence - the security at the station noticed us almost straight away and spent the next hour or so following us in their car - at least they didn't try and take our camera!
Anyway, we know they have the trees, and from their own website we know they burn a percentage of biomass - but where the hell are the trees from and what eco-damage is being caused?
We've been liaising with some leading groups in the Biomass area and none of us are aware of the source!
So... if any of you readers out there know any more about this then please let us know!
