Harvesting Miscanthus Power Station

Grant advice

SEIL Team offer grant advice and project research as part of the Renewable Heat Incentive and Feed In Tariffs that aim to increase the amount of energy crops grown in England in appropriate locations.

Our Miscanthus crops are used as a substitute for fossil fuels, so they can contribute to a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and help to combat climate change. The scheme, part of the Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE), is funded by the European Union, through the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development. The RDPE was agreed by the European Commission on 6 December 2007.
