Share your views and make a difference - volunteer to test an app

Your feedback will help us develop an innovative tool to help upscale perennial energy crops deployment in the UK.

The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) through their Bioenergy Feedstocks Innovation Competition are funding a feasibility study into the development of a web app that calculates the production potential and economic value of perennial energy crops on different land types in the UK.

NFU Energy are part of a consortium led by the Agri Food and Biosciences Institute (AFBI) that will create and test a proof of concept demonstrator. 

The Perennial Energy Crops – Decision Support System (PEC-DSS) is almost ready for testing. We therefore welcome volunteers to help us test the prototype and give feedback. If you are a farmer or land manager interested in or already growing short rotation coppice or miscanthus, we would like to hear from you.

Please fill out the details below and we will be in touch. We will make the process as simple as possible, and we will not share your information with anyone.
