Our Biomass heating system is the ideal solution to help commercial buildings replace their existing fossil fuel heating system in a way that is cost effective and carbon netural.
Our system is quick and simple to install and causes minimal disruption to the everyday running of a business. The system can burn either wood chip or wood pellets and is contained in one unit/pod which houses all necessary components required to efficiently deliver low cost heat and is available in heat outputs from 30kW to 500kW.
It includes a Boiler, Flue, Buffer Tank, Fuel Store, Fuel Feed System, Boiler House; with all electrical & Building work also included.
The Support Scheme for Renewable Heat is a new government funded initative that is open to commercial, industrial, agricultural, district heating, public sector and other non domestic heat users. The grant aims to bridge the gap between the intallation and operating costs of renewable heating systems and the conventional fossil fuel alternatives and incentivise the development and supply of renewable heat.
The scheme offers ongoing operation support (a tariff) based on useable heat output in renewable heating systems, in new installations or installations that currently use a fossil fuel heating system and want to convert to Biomass options. The tariff will be made available to successful applicants for a period of up to 15 years and the grant is paid by the kWh for up to 15 years too.
REC will also guide you through the grant application process.
We analyse fuel savings and grant paybacks on an individual basis as everyone's usage will differ.
However below is an illustrative example of a business who has a solid fuel bill of €18,317 a year and changed their system to Biomass using the government initative.
This business would save the following in one year;
New fuel bill at €10,935
Grant payment of €18,084
Total annual saving of €25,467
This business would save the following in 15 years (length of government payback scheme);
Fuel bill at €110,730
Grant payment of €271,260
Total saving over 15 years of €381,990 (which includes the cost of installing the new system)
Noel Kneafsey of Kilcara House Nursing Home:
“Before upgrading to Biomass in 2010 we were burning €26,000 of Oil per year to keep Kilcara House comfortable for our residents, 12 months after the new boiler went in and our fuel bill had dropped to €8,512 for Wood Chip. The facts speak for themselves, and we are delighted with the system. Renewable Energy Centre guided us through the upgrade from concept to completion and we have never looked back.”
Paudie O’Shea of Ballyferriter C.F.C.D.:
“We are very happy with the Biomass installation from Renewable Energy Centre, which has been in operation since 2014 and other than an annual service has not required any other maintenance and has been completely trouble free. Our in house service personnel speak very highly of the system, as it requires almost no input from them, other than to empty the ashbin at intervals. We will certainly work with Stephen and his Team again on future projects.”
