This interface, including for example the heat exchanger and pipes, is not a part of the BMDH plant. Normally, the equipment was planned, installed and maintained by independent local plumbers, who did not have any particular experience with district heating.

Environmental issues, particularly related to CO2 emissions, are also contributing to foster these new markets for bioenergy technologies and services. At the same time, tropical countries with large availability of land can become important producers of biofuels for an international market. In addition to the goal to develop a competitive bioenergy industry, there is the need to promote regional development and guarantee the security of energy supply. Bioenergy investments are suitable to promote regional development, not least because the biomass production is per definition geographically spread out.

The production of oilseed rape for nonfood purposes benefits from subsidy payments under the current EU CAP set-aside policy which is aimed at reducing arable land area dedicated to food production. There is no other specific incentive for its cultivation for biodiesel production in the UK. A U K Emissions Trading Scheme for greenhouse gases (GHG) has been in place since 2002 and has acted as a precursor to the EU-wide trading scheme to begin in 2005. The GHG trading schemes could support biomass for energy, but how the carbon substitution and carbon sink benefits from biomass energy will be treated by these schemes remains unclear.
