    An article in a local paper particularly caught our eye recently, as it covered the details of a new project by East Riding of Yorkshire Council to invest in a number of biomass boilers for schools in the surrounding area. The council has so far installed biomass boilers in 5 schools in the Yorkshire area, and plan to up that number to 20 in the coming months.

    Heating and Hot Water from Biomass Boilers

    Not only will the new biomass boiler systems in these Yorkshire schools provide heating and hot water more efficiently in order to save money, they’ll also help to reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions in the area.

    As the benefits of biomass boilers become more widely recognised, a variety of commercial premises across the UK have taken advantage of the technology to provide them with heating and hot water.

    As expert biomass installers in Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Derbyshire, Phaseline Renewables are understandably delighted at the continued enthusiasm surrounding renewable energy, and the increasing interest in using biomass boilers to generate heat and hot water for domestic and commercial premises.

    The schools that have already benefitted from the programme are mainly rural and off the gas network, meaning that they relied heavily upon oil of their source of heating. But by installing biomass boilers in the schools, running costs can be reduced dramatically and CO2 emissions can be reduced by as much as 80%.

    Sustainable and Low Carbon Fuel

    Biomass not only provides a sustainable and reliable low carbon solution, it also makes sense financially too. The renewable heat incentive helps to fund the biomass installations, as well as providing a good return on investment in the form of payments from the scheme for the next 20 years.

    The Renewable Heat Incentive

    And it’s not just schools that can benefit from the renewable heat incentive. According to Ofgem, “a non-domestic installation is a renewable heat unit that supplies large-scale industrial heating to small community heating projects. This includes for example small businesses, hospitals and schools as well as district heating schemes such as where one boiler serves multiple homes.”

        The Non-Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive aims to increase the proportion of heat generated from renewable sources by offering a financial incentive that is made payable over the course of a number of years. The heat sector is heavily dominated by fossil fuel technologies, but by driving this change, the RHI can help the United Kingdom to meet targets laid out by the EU to reduce carbon emissions and improve energy security for the future of the planet. It also has potential to develop a number of ‘green jobs’ across the country, reducing unemployment and creating opportunities.

        How are Payments from the Non-Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive Administered?

        The subsidy available is paid out over the course of twenty years to eligible, non-domestic generators of renewable heat. Ofgem is in charge of implementing and administering the scheme on behalf of the Department of Energy and Climate Change.

        The Non-Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive is open to the non-domestic sector, which broadly includes industrial, commercial, public sector and not for profit organizations that have eligible installations, such as biomass boilers for example. It is also available to producers of biomethane. In this context, a non-domestic installation is a renewable heat unit that supplies large-scale industrial heating to small community heating projects.

        Mainline Mouldings are a picture frame moulding and framing supplier based in Nottinghamshire. They offer one of the widest ranges of quality picture frame mouldings and picture frames in the UK, and are used by picture framers, art galleries, photographers, artists and hobbyists.

        The company approached Phaseline Renewables regarding the possible installation of a biomass boiler for their business after we installed a 180kW commercial system at the neighboring JIT Logistics facility.  Mainline Mouldings were in the process of starting the extensive job of doubling the size of their commercial warehousing, and they needed a new heating system to cope with this project.

        The expert biomass installers Yorkshire at Phaseline installed a 199kW Lewis BioEnergy boiler cascade system, alongside a 10 tonne bulk pellet hopper and automatic auger feed system. The boilers heat the main warehouses using water to air fan heaters, and heat the office blocks using a traditional radiator circuit.  They also provide all the hot water requirements for the kitchen, toilets and break-out room.

            For those people who have their own wood source such as logs, log gasification boilers are great options. Biomass log boilers are very attractive option for those that live in rural areas, and those who have good access to logs that can be sourced from their land. By using logs that you source yourself, you could reduce your potential fuel cost to nothing, while receiving an income from the renewable heat incentive.

            Renewable Heat Incentive Payments

            Taking into account the renewable heat incentive payments and the fuel savings from a log boiler, the total financial generation can be very impressive. Mr Rymer from Hull contacted Phaseline as he wanted to heat his property using logs, hoping saving money on his bills and earning money from the renewable heat incentive.  It was the perfect solution for this customer, as he was lucky enough to have a good supply and availability of logs. The ability to use this supply to provide all of his heating and hot water would save him a significant amount of money on his annual heating bills.

                Did you know that the retail giant John Lewis has a company spa in Snowdonia? This brand new company spa and wellness centre is located at their partnership hotel and activity centre on the banks of Bala Lake, and includes an outdoor spa pool which overlooks the mountains, a sauna, a vitality pool, a swimming pool and two therapy treatment suites.

                Payments from the Renewable Heat Incentive

                According to the online sustainable energy news site Business Green, the building is eligible to receive £5,500 a year from The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), government lead payback scheme. The installation of the biomass boiler at the spa means that an estimated 27 tonnes of CO2 will be saved per year compared to the use of a system fuelled by oil.

                The spa and wellness centre also include a water harvesting system which is used to process waste, and the entire building conforms to Excellent BREEAM standards, the world’s foremost environmental assessment method and rating system for buildings.

                50kW Wood Chip Biomass Boiler

                The spa design and concept incorporates specific requirements for eco operations, including a biomass boiler. The 50kW wood chip boiler heats the water for the swimming pool, spa pool and the general heating systems for the spa building including under floor heating. The system will use approximately 26 tonnes of wood chip per year, and will be locally sourced from the woodland surrounding the spa, which is also owned by the John Lewis Partnership.

                As biomass installers Yorkshire, we think that the John Lewis Partnership have set an excellent example by installing a biomass boiler here. Not only are they helping to cut CO2 emissions and ensure that their energy use is sustainable for the future, the payments that they will receive from the Renewable Heat Incentive are very impressive. All in all, it looks like a really fantastic place, of course made even better by its renewable energy use!

                  Renewable Energy Sector Including Biomass Boilers Now Support Over 100,000 UK Jobs

                  leave a comment

                  Be Sociable, Share!

                    The Renewable Energy Association, in partnership with Innovas and PwC, has recently published a very interesting report which has found that the renewable energy sector now supports over 100,000 jobs in the UK. According to the report, the renewable energy industry has attracted nearly £30 billion of private sector investment since 2010. In turn, this generated a huge turnover of £14 billion in 2013, and delivered 4.2% of UK energy.

                    The report is called ‘REview – Renewable Energy View: 2014’, and expands on the Renewable Energy Association’s report from 2012 titled ‘Renewable Energy: Made in Britain, the first industry-wide analysis of employment in the UK renewable energy industry.’ The paper itself is thought to be the most comprehensive assessment yet of the renewable energy market in the UK, and was formally launched in the House of Commons by Energy Minister Greg Barker on May 1st 2014.
