The article discusses the implication of jeopardizing dedicated biomass by increasing co-firing subsidies. Using the purist approach to design Great Britain's bioenergy infrastructure from the start is considered by the author as a good starting point for the government as it designs bioenergy policy. Review is being done to the central role of dedicated biomass. The commerciality and possibility of local-scale dedicated biomass is highlighted.
