- Moving the bio-energy debate from 'fuel or food' to 'fuel and more food' in a way that is economic, large scale, and sustainable.
Solving climate change needs new renewable technologies that can be deployed at scale economically and sustainably. These technologies must also help stabilise the grid and follow demand rather than simply generate when nature provides.
