Biomass Suppliers List (BSL)
The Biomass Suppliers List (BSL) overseen by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC). The BSL is a list of Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) eligible wood fuels and biomass suppliers in the UK.
RHI participants using biomass fuel need to ensure that their fuel meets the RHI sustainability criteria and demonstrate this to Ofgem in order to claim RHI payments. Fuel must meet a lifecycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions criteria of 60 per cent GHG savings against the EU fossil fuel average, and the land criteria – which for wood fuel are set out in the UK Timber Standard for Heat and Electricity. Local suppliers with BSL authorised fuels can be searched by postcode through the site. Perpetual Energy is a registered biomass fuel supplier and is listed and registered on the website.
The BSL is a fuel sustainability scheme but encourage the use of high quality fuel. The BSL supports the use of fuel with quality assurance certification through Woodsure and ENplus.
