Introduction to biomass energy & wood boiler heating solutions

  1. 1. Introduction to BiomassEnergy & Wood BoilerHeating Solutions
  2. 2. SourceThe Oxford Renewables aim is to build up the small-scalerenewable energy capacity across the south of England with a range ofwood boiler / biomass heating solution services & products. Renewableenergy is becoming increasingly common as more and more peoplelook for alternatives to fossil fuels. Traditional fuels such as oil, gas andLPG are costly, damaging to the environment and rapidly running out.Nor do they suit modern household and industrial demands forclean, efficient and locally abundant sources of energy. However, we allhave access to wood and solar energy, which are environmentallysustainable energy sources as we are capable of controlling andmanaging the resource and renewing the available stock. Assuch, Oxford Renewables is proud to supply a range of woodboilers, solar and biomass heating solutions that are suitable fordomestic, rural and commercial properties.
  3. 3. Wood boilers and Biomass heating solutions are fuelefficient, reliable, and safe. The solar and biomass heating systems weoffer are eligible for incentives and bursaries from the government – soyou can get paid to heat your space and save energy, also reduce yourcarbon footprint. What’s more, the savings achieved by renewable andbiomass energy means that the equipment pays for itself over time.Investing in renewable energy is investing in your future.Biomass HeatingBiomass heating uses various forms of wood(pellets, chips, recently felled wood or waste timber etc) to fuel boilersand supply, most commonly, heating but can also be used to heatwater too. Ideal for small to medium sized homes andbusinesses, biomass heating is incredibly efficient and offers excellentenergy savings and reduced bills. Biomass heating solutions can varylargely in size and there are several models available which are smallenough for use inside the home. Larger properties can benefit fromcombined biomass boilers which use both pellets and logs for moreeffective heating and energy usage.
  4. 4. Multi Fuel HeatingMulti fuel heating, when used in reference to biomass energy,generally refers to heating systems that use more than one form of fuel –most commonly wood pellets and logs. Multi fuel heating is incrediblyefficient as it can be loaded with logs in the morning, and once they havebeen used the boiler will automatically switch to burning pellets if moreheating is required. Using multiple forms of fuel reduces the need formanual loading and also allows you to more effectively tailor your fuelusage to suit your energy requirements.Solar Heating SystemsThe solar heating systems provided by SOLARFOCUS combinebiomass heating and solar panels for increased efficiency. These twoforms of energy work incredibly well together because, during the summermonths, using solar energy is a fantastic alternative to biomass and helpsto prolong the life of the boiler. Solar energy is excellent for producingdomestic hot water (DHW) and biomass energy can be used when the sunisn’t shining or you have increased demand.
  5. 5. Additionally, biomass boiler installations require a large buffer storewhich are perfect for storing solar energy when the DHW tank isfull, increasing your return on investment.Enough solar energy falls on the earth’s surface in an hour, toprovide the planet’s energy needs for a year. SOLARFOCUS thermalcollectors play their part, getting ahold of up to 70% of that solar energyto drive heating and hot water systems within residential, commercialand industrial applications. One of the simplest and most robusttechnologies in this field are the collectors. These capture thermalenergy from direct and ambient sunlight and stores it in liquid form. Thehot liquid (usually glycol) then heats up water. Due to the simplicity ofthe conversion solar thermal energy does not create secondaryemissions.
  6. 6. Domestic Biomass Boilers & StovesWe offer a variety of biomass and wood boilers or wood stovesthat are specifically designed for use in the home. Compact in size andrequiring little storage space, domestic biomass boilers & biomassstoves are an energy efficient alternative to more traditional forms ofheating and, when the Renewable Heat Incentive is introduced forhome owners in 2014, it will provide an added stream of income inaddition to excellent heat generation and energy savings. Will also giveyou a return on your investment. Wood stove boilers or domesticbiomass boilers can be used for both general heating and supplying hotwater, and are available in various sizes and styles to suit individualpreferences.
  7. 7. Commercial Biomass HeatingDuring these financially constrained times many businesses are lookingto invest what available capital they have in ways that both save themmoney and can also provide a source of revenue generation. TheOxford Renewables commercial offering does just that. We havehelped schools, care homes, farms and Almshouses switch from theiroutdated, inefficient and costly fossil fuel systems to commercial wood-fuel / biomass heating alternatives. They all have cut their fuel bills byup to 50% and provide a new 20-year income stream via the RHI.Together, this adds tens of thousands of pounds to their bottom line. Inpursuit of developing our offer we work in conjunction with CPLIndustries to offer a containerised solution , the ‘CPL Pellet Box’. It hasbeen designed especially for commercial heating and industrialpremises. As the boiler room and fuel store are built in the containerand installed off site this offering is ‘ plug and play’.
  8. 8. Oxford Renewable supplies, installs and maintains the heatingsystem while CPL Industries provide 200 years of experience in solidfuel distribution. Alongside receiving RHI revenue the equipment itselfoperates low fuel usage and requires little maintenance40′ containerwith two PelletTop 70kW boilers inside Wood Boilers & Wood Stoves.The variety of wood boilers & wood stoves offered by OxfordRenewables will suit any premises and application. Offeringguaranteed energy savings and a return on your investment.Because fuel for wood stoves or boilers is so readily availableacross the UK, using wood boilers helps to fund the local economy andrural companies while providing cheaper biomass fuel for your boiler orwood stove – especially when purchased in bulk.
