Renewable Fuel SEPTEMBER UPDATE

MP puts forward two amendments to the Government’s energy bill.

Following the visit to Kehelland to see the first HVO village in the country and to meet the residents, George Eustice MP, has put forward amendments to the energy bill to seek support for renewable liquid fuels.

Kehelland HVO Village

We do require government to review fuel duty for renewable fuels as they must be treated in the same way as their fossil equivalent and not incur extra duty as is the case currently. HVO when used for heating must also be treated the same way as when used in transport and vehicles and the changes needed will help reduce the cost of HVO for all consumers.

George Eustice has also recently featured in the national media highlighting the ban relating to fitting new boilers (that is proposed for 2026) should be dropped and homeowners encouraged instead to use environmentally friendly fuel such as HVO. We very much hope that when Parliament returns MPs from all parties will be supportive and agree the amendments are a sensible step forward to help the roll out of HVO for heating.

Up to 90% saving in Net greenhouse gas COÇ emissions

The trials of Hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO) have shown that this renewable fuel can replace fossil fuel and decarbonise in an extremely cost effective and least disruptive way. The fuel is non-toxic, biodegradable and made from certified wastes without contributing to deforestation.

We are delighted to say that only minor changes to the boiler at the point of conversion are needed, so residents can utilise their existing heating systems to keep their home warm.

There has been a positive response from the media and we are pleased to have been featured in National and local press and BBC spotlight.

Please can we thank all the residents trialling HVO, including those shown below, for your positive honest feedback to the journalists. Hopefully the great success of the HVO project will lead to a policy makers rethink.

STOP PRESS

The Department of Energy have put down amendments to the Energy Bill which will enable the chance for a fuel obligation scheme. This is what we have been calling for to enable renewable fuels like HVO to be introduced for heating.

This is a major step and good news for us all, with work now required within the industry to progress things to ensure it is fully implemented.

We will keep everyone updated as the journey continues.


We need your support to help Government approve this fuel for use and ensure it is sensibly priced
