There is a bit of it about but people tend to keep quiet on the issue

I've read that it's great for bio-digester installations

Lots of it on a local farm (Trebah, very well known). Impossible to eradicate, comes up through a thick concrete WWII road. If treated incorrectly can actually grow even stronger. It really thrives in the Manx and Cornish climate.

You're not allowed to cultivate it so I don't see how this can be known. A local biomass generator uses a variant of sweetcorn.

I very much doubt it was deliberately cultivated for feeding bio-digesters, more perhaps a 'green' method of putting what is there & unwanted to useful purpose

I believe that cows like it.
