REA Biomass is the member forum for the UK’s biomass power sector, the second largest source of renewable electricity in Britain. It works to promote a better understanding of biomass energy and its benefits to the UK.

It represents nearly 200 owners, operators, suppliers, contractors and investors in the UK’s international biomass supply chain. Between them, our members are responsible for around 7 – 9% of Britain’s electricity supply. They are focused on furthering the success of the UK’s biomass industry by working with government, politicians, media, academics and others.
