    Biofuel to count towards UK green energy target

    The UK government has announced proposals to include biofuel in its attempts to meet the 2020 EU green energy target.

    The move would see biofuels counted twice towards the contribution of renewable energy in the UK, helping the country to reach its target percentage more easily. The proposals have attracted some criticism, though, thanks to the contribution fuels made from crops and other plants also make to greenhouse emissions.
