Biomass boilers usually burn wood chip or pellets to create heat which can replace traditional fossil fuel heating systems. They can be installed on both a domestic and commercial scale and all benefit from the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). The systems are fully automated meaning they operate in the same way, and with as little fuss, as a conventional oil or gas boiler. Fuel can be sourced from several UK based suppliers, or alternatively from estate woodland and chipped on site.

Biomass combined heat and power (CHP) is becoming a realistic opportunity for sites with large and constant heat demand. CHP is different to a boiler, requiring more uninterrupted continuous operation. Furthermore biomass CHP can be a significant investment and requires higher use to justify the expenditure. However, the correct applications can secure large income through multiple revenue streams including the RHI and Renewable Obligation.

Carter Jonas’ Energy Team is expert in the biomass market and can support projects through initial feasibility to installation and operation.
