Our aim: The Supergen Bioenergy Hub aims to work across academia, industry and societal stakeholders to develop sustainable bioenergy systems which support the UK’s transition to an affordable, resilient, low-carbon energy future.

The Hub will:

  • Identify and evaluate the wider sustainability impacts of the UK’s bioenergy sector that maximise the benefits of bioenergy to the energy trilemma of affordability, resilience and carbon.
  • Evaluate the role and impact of selected bioenergy pathways at appropriate deployment scales on the energy system and interfacing sectors.
  • Identify and select appropriate energy vectors and determine how these fit within a wider bio refinery strategy to reduce carbon and reliance on fossil fuel, while maximising national and regional resilience.
  • Identify and select energy and cost optimised routes to achieve vectors and technologies that fit with the overall environmental vision of the Hub.
