With energy companies increasing the cost of fossil fuel, biomass boilers are becoming a more attractive solution for businesses and properties situated in large expanses of land.
If logs are free and readily available, it is worth considering a log gasification boiler. Boilers from Solar Focus and Viessmann vary in output from 18kW to 170kW. For those with access to their own wood fuel they can offer extremely low running costs with high efficiencies. These boilers are large and highly insulated. They require loading once a day in colder conditions; as it becomes milder they can be loaded less frequently. Their systems are simple, cost-effective and reliable – ideal where costs need to be reduced and logs are readily available.
On a large rural property, a smaller biomass boiler of 100kW replacing an oil boiler could not only earn around £180K through RHI payments in over 20 years but also significantly reduce your fuel bills. A larger biomass boiler of 200kW replacing an oil boiler can earn twice that amount in the same time.
If logs are not available, then wood chip boilers are also an excellent solution, whether you source the chips from the property itself or locally. The high efficiency and low running costs of wood chip boilers make them ideal for the high demands of a sports club or country estate. Wood chips can deliver heat at around 2.5p/kWh. This is much less than oil or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) which costs 6.7p/kWh and substantially less than electricity at over 10p/kWh. The Renewable Heat Incentive provides payments up to 6.8p/kWh.
