Biomass Boilers Wood-fuelled heating solutions
A little bit about wood-fuelled heating systems......
Wood-fuelled heating systems, also called biomass systems, burn wood pellets, chips or logs to to provide warmth in a single room or to power central heating and hot water boilers.
A stove burns logs or pellets to heat a single room - and may be fitted with a back boiler to provide water heating as well.
A biomass boiler burns logs, pellets or chips, and is connected to a central heating and hot water system. A wood-fuelled boiler could save you nearly £600 a year compared to electric heating.
The benefits of Biomass Boilers include: Affordable heating fuel: although the price of wood fuel varies considerably, it is often cheaper than other heating options. Financial support: wood fuel boiler systems could benefit from the Renewable Heat Premium Payment and the Renewable Heat Incentive. A low-carbon option: the carbon dioxide emitted when wood is burned is the same amount that was absorbed over the months and years that the plant was growing. The process is sustainable as long as new plants continue to grow in place of those used for fuel. There are some carbon emissions caused by the cultivation, manufacture and transportation of the fuel, but as long as the fuel is sourced locally, these are much lower than the emissions from fossil fuels.

The Renewable Heat Premium Payment is a one-off grant designed to help towards meeting the costs of installing renewable technologies in your home, until the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is introduced for domestic customers.Renewable Heat Premium Payment
Technology Voucher Value (£) Air-to-water Heat Pump £1,300 Biomass Boiler £2,000 Ground or Water-source Heat Pump £2,300 Solar Thermal Hot water £600 Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) Scheme
The details of the domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) were announced by the UK Government on 12 July 2013. The main details of the scheme which were announced, and which are subject to final clarification and parliamentary approval, are listed below:
The main details of the scheme are listed below: The domestic RHI is a UK Government financial support scheme for renewable heat, targeted at, but not limited to, off gas grid households. the domestic RHI scheme covers England, Wales and Scotland only DECC intend that the scheme will open to applications in Spring 2014 and will be administered by Ofgem Ofgem guidance will be available before the launch of the scheme on how to apply and the information that will need to be provided the scheme will cover single domestic dwellings and will be open to owner-occupiers, private landlords, Registered Providers of Social Housing, third party owners of heating systems and self-builders. It will not be open to new build properties other than self-build it will be open to anyone in these groups who installed an eligible technology since 15th July 2009, provided they meet the scheme criteria for those who have installed a renewable heating system before the launch of the scheme in Spring 2014 and since 15 July 2009 (legacy applications), the date they can submit their application may not be from when the scheme first opens and will be phased over time. Further details on the phasing will be provided by Ofgem prior to launch the financial support will be paid at a set rate per unit of renewable heat produced (kilowatt hour or kWh), for seven years, to the owner of the heating system the scheme will support air source heat pumps (ASHP), biomass systems, ground source heat pumps (GSHP) and solar thermal technologies. The support rates will vary depending on the technology installed Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) Tarrif
Air source heat pump Biomass Ground source heat pump Solar thermal Tariff (p/kWh renewable heat) 7.3 12.2 18.8 19.2 for biomass the renewable heat generated will be based on an estimated figure of heat demand from an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) for heat pumps the renewable heat generated will be based on an estimate of the heat demand from an EPC combined with an estimate of the heat pump's efficiency for solar thermal systems the renewable heat generated will be based on the estimate of system performance completed as part of an Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) installation to help improve performance of renewable heating systems, there will be an extra incentive for applicants who install metering and monitoring service packages, of £230 per year for heat pumps and £200 per year for biomass boilers to be eligible the system must be certified under the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) scheme and meet relevant standards for each technology all applicants are required to complete a Green Deal Assessment (GDA) before applying and to ensure they meet minimum energy efficiency requirements of loft and cavity insulation where required by the GDA any public grants previously received, including RHPP, will be deducted to avoid a double subsidy tariffs will change annually in line with the Retail Price Index (RPI) DECC intend to introduce a system of degression to control the costs of the scheme. This is where tariffs are reduced over time for new applications to the scheme. Those who have already secured their tariff will not have their tariff reduced due to cost control. DECC will announce further details on the cost control policy in Autumn 2013.
