Woodchip supply deal boosts South East renewable aim

South East Wood Fuels (SEWF) has signed an investment deal with three woodchip suppliers that it claims make it "arguably the single biggest provider to the premium-grade wood fuel market in the south of England".

George Meyrick of Energy & Environment Business Services, John Leigh-Pemberton of Torry Hill Chestnut Fencing and Alastair Beddall of Practicality Brown have also been appointed to the board with immediate effect.

The wood fuel market is expanding because of the Government's Renewable Heat Incentive scheme, which aims to increase UK heat production from renewable sources more than tenfold by 2020.

SEWF managing director Julian Morgan-Jones said the company would now have a consistent supply of locally sourced, high-quality woodchip.
