We undertake heat load calculations, site surveys and feasibility studies to determine whether biomass heating is appropriate and cost effective. Where biomass heating will work, we can then provide: detailed system design, equipment specification, technical advice and professional project management.
With you every step of the way
Enviko guides and supports you through your biomass heating project from concept to commissioning and beyond into the operation and maintenance of your system. We will arrange suitable wood fuel supplies, regular servicing and even financing if required. Call 020 8541 1714 to discuss your options.
In conjunction with our business partners we can also advise on how biomass heating might fit into your broader renewables agenda.
20 point feasibility study
For large premises interested in switching to biomass heating, and want to investigate the significant savings to be made.
We are able to offer independent advice, the scope of this study is to:
Carry out a site visit to:
Assess the existing boiler for condition, size and efficiency.
Inspect the distribution and emitter circuits for their suitability for a biomass system.
Determine options for integration of any new biomass boiler with the existing system.
Assess the available space in the existing plant/boiler room for new plant.
Consider possible locations for a biomass boiler & fuel storage.
Assess access to the site for fuel delivery.
Consult with the client to clarify their instructions and discuss any additional factors or requirements which may be relevant.
Analyse available data on heating and cooling loads for the building or site. If this is not available model an energy demand profile using annual energy bills or energy consumption benchmarks.
Use the energy demand profile to determine the optimum size of the biomass boiler in terms of carbon and energy savings.
Suggest a suitable boiler size and type.
Determine the advantages and disadvantages of different fuel types for the particular site and recommend the most favourable.
Estimate the amount of biomass fuel required on an annual basis. Consider the on-site implications for fuel delivery, handling and storage.
Carry out a survey of fuel suppliers for the tonnage and type as required by the site. Make an assessment of costs and security of supply.
Analyse potential barriers to development including local planning, smoke control and emissions restrictions.
Conduct an economic profile of the project. This will include estimated installation costs, expected Renewable Heat Incentive payments and expected returns after allowing for biomass fuel and running costs.
Simple pay-back periods, IRR and NPVs are also given.
Estimate the expected CO2 emission savings of the scheme.
Report on all findings including key risks and potential “show stoppers”. The report identifies whether the site is suitable for biomass, and if so the most suitable plant size and fuel type.
Give clear recommendations on the next steps.
At all stages the report will identify any major constraints (“show stoppers”) that may affect the proposal.

Three different renewable technologies.
Solar PV - We are experienced specialists in solar PV. In recent years solar has become an increasingly popular method of generating renewable electricity.
We can reduce your carbon footprint and help you to demonstrate your green credentials.
Wind - Enviko provides turnkey engineering solutions for wind turbine sites. With our wide knowledge and experience, we can guide you along the most effective and affordable path to delivering your wind project. Enviko’s expertise resides in grid connection, civils and foundation design, wind turbine erection, installation and commissioning and on-going Operation and Maintenance Services both Preventative/On-Going and Unscheduled.
Renewable heating - We can provide commercial bodies with a range of renewable heating solutions, including biomass, heat pumps and solar thermal.
We find the best solution to match your budget and energy demands.
