Businesses all over the UK are changing from conventional heating to biomass boilers to not only reduce their current heating and thermal demand but to also to take advantage of the Government's implementation of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).

Biomass can be used to provide a steady flow hot water, for domestic properties or commercial premises like universities, farms or housing estates. Some of the boilers can provide can also produce hot air from a direct air-to-air heat exchanger.

How a biomass boiler operates is relatively simple; the fuel is fed from the fuel store into the main combustion chamber and is burnt at high temperatures to produce heat. The thermal energy is transferred via a heat exchanger to heat the water, oil which is then circulated around the building or used for other work processes requiring heat. Essentially, anything that is deemed as organic can be used to produce low carbon energy.

PES have undertaken a number of projects using Biomass and Anaerobic Digestion, and can offer the full package from design through to installation, including arranging all that is required to apply for the RHI.
