DO YOU KNOW...... ....How many tonnes of CO2 your golf club emits every year and would you like to reduce these emissions and reduce your annual fuel costs?A recent feasibility study undertake for Ripley Castle and Estates shows that introducing a biomass heating system could save £10,577 fuel costs and 210 tonnes CO2 every year.Case StudyA country house hotel and spa in Wales, is thought to be the first hotel in Wales to harness the power of biomass fuel for all its heating needs. The 600kW renewable energy system, which is powered by wood chip, will completely cancel out the £90,000 a year oil bill of the four star hotel and will help safeguard its future as a key island employer of 80 people.RENEWABLE HEAT INCENTIVE (RHI)The Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme provides businesses and the public sector with cash back for the generation of renewable heat. It is a government-‐backed measure, which was introduced in July 2011, to make production of heat through renewable means more financially attractive.The Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme will represent over £860m of investment over the spending review period, driving a more-‐than-‐tenfold increase of renewable heat over the coming decade and shifting renewable heat from a fringe industry firmly into the mainstream. This is with the ambition of increasing the total heat produced from renewable sources from 1% to 12% by 2020. This would save about 60 million tonnes of CO2 by 2020, helping to minimise heating effects on climate change.
WHAT WE OFFERConstant Energy Limited can provide full project management for the purchase, installation and commissioning of biomass boilers -‐ pellet feed or log feed.There are a number of options available to acquire a biomass boiler, from our FREE TO FIT scheme, backed by a £20 million fund, to an outright purchase, the full details are;a) Under our FREE to FIT scheme we can supply, install, commission and maintain a biomass boiler at the premises and you only have to purchase the fuel, which could mean a saving of up to 40% against current oil fuel prices. Under this model the owner of the boiler asset retains the rights to the RHI income and the carbon credits generated.b) You can purchase the biomass boiler outright, or via finance, which we can help arrange this for you, and you retain all the RHI income and carbon credits, again we will help through this process. The estimated amount payable from the RHI, over twenty years, for the installation of a 190kW boilers is in excess of £500k.One finance source has a repayment structure that is geared to the future projected RHI income.c) A third party investment fund that may invest in your project, you wont need to pay them back any of the capital until an agreed date in the future, which they will agree with you. So unlike a bank loan, where you start paying back each month soon after you take out the loan, youll have plenty of time to get your project established before you need to worry about repayments. In return, theyll also ask you to pay them a share of the income that your installation delivers. This will come from the Renewable Heat Incentive payments, for example. So you only pay them when the project is working successfully. Its a great example of win/win working.Would you like a free report outlining how many tonnes of CO2 you can save per annum, ongoing fuel savings and the projected RHI revenue you could receive?All we require at this stage is; 1. What current fuel you are using for heating and hot water. 2. What was the total fuel cost for the last financial year. 3. Your Postcode.You could be eligible for in excess of £500k plus in revenue from the RHI.Constant Energy can provide a full independent feasibility study for your golf club. This study will highlight the full range of renewable energy possibilities and associated incentives available.

GOLF CLUBS: CASE STUDIESKemnay Golf Club in Aberdeenshire clubhouse was built in 2000 few anticipated how energy costs would spiral over the coming with extensive windows, was powered by The club looked into ground source heat pumps, but their ongoing electrical supply costs and longer payback period made this a less attractive option The switch to solar panel and biomass energy has been immediately said David on electricity costs even after the cost of wood pellets. We anticipate full payback of our biomass boiler installation outlay within less than eight yearsBowood Spa in WiltshireIn 2008, the new Bowood Spa Hotel and Golf Club in Wiltshire, which has extensive forestry operations, also embarked on this technology to heat its clubhouse and conference centre but was concerned about the visual impact it would create. Therefore, a semi-‐sunken energy centre with timber cladding, powder-‐coated flues and screening by mature trees was built for a 320kW woodchip boiler and two standby gas boilers, and pre-‐insulated plastic heat mains pipes connect the biomass boiler to the buildings across the estate. and slide-‐open wood fuel allows woodchip to be tipped directly into the fuel bunker. Fuel is delivered by a tipping tractor trailer. The boiler uses about 250 tonnes of seasoned woodchip sourced from the to supply approximately 750MWh of renewable biomass heat for the facility, saving 150 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year on gas architect Jeremy Blake. Furthermore, this approach clearly has a good PR value. At the time, The Times newspaper described BowoodThe Oaks in YorkshireA few years ago, The Oaks Golf Club & Spa in Yorkshire installed four kerosene boilers, but by 2007 these were consuming around £30,000-‐worth of fuel per year, which was set to rise by 50 per cent within a year.As subscriptions are set a year in advance, the club could not offset price increases among the membership. The REKA biomass boiler was identified as the boiler option and a 200kW unit was installed. The scheme is sited within a purpose-‐built boiler house containing the boiler, an auger-‐fed fuel hopper comprising a second-‐hand, slightly modified diet feeder trailer and a skid-‐mounted 1.5 tonne wheat tote bin for the ash.A member of staff checks the system each morning, while an integral air blast system clears the pipes every 20 minutes, reducing manual pipe maintenance to once per month. Hot water from the boiler is piped underground straight into the existing heating system. The kerosene boilers have been retained as backup and should output from the biomass boiler fall below a preset level, they will automatically take over.The boiler cost £35,000 and the investment was recovered by 2010 just three years afterthe boiler was built.
GOLF CLUBS: CASE STUDIESCleobury Mortimer Golf Club ShropshireA 75kW Attack Profi Log Boiler and 5,000 litre accumulator tank to provide heating and hot water to the entire golf club installed in a purpose-‐built plant room adjoining the golf club. An LPG boiler provides back-‐up if required. it offers to all who play there. Like many golf clubs, CMGC was severely affected by the economic downturn and even more so by recent bad weather. This concentrated the minds of the owners to look for more efficient ways to run and operate a clubhouse that needs to be warm, friendly and inviting, whatever the weather outside.It became clear that a biomass boiler heating system could offer real benefits and would fit in well with the supply fuel for the boiler. The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) pays the golf club a tax-‐ free income for the heat that it produces for 20 years and this is estimated at approximately £7,000 annually. The club is saving just under £1,000 a month on LPG costs during the heating season and his produces a combined annual financial benefit of approximately £11,600, and investment capital will be recovered in just over 2 years.*Please note these installations are case studies of existing biomass boiler installations and none of the above our clients.
