Oswestry Energy Fair - Talbott

  1. 1. Talbott’s Biomass Energy Presented by Bob Talbott
  2. 2. Talbott’s Background <ul><li>Established over 30 years ago </li></ul><ul><li>One of the UK’s leading manufacturers of biomass energy systems </li></ul><ul><li>4,000 installations worldwide </li></ul><ul><li>A range of 40 different combustion systems are now produced </li></ul><ul><li>Outputs range from 25kW to 4MW </li></ul><ul><li>Units can have energy outputs of hot air, hot water, steam or electricity </li></ul>
  3. 3. What is Biomass? <ul><li>All plant and animal matter such as trees and energy crops </li></ul><ul><li>Biomass can be combusted to provide heat then converted into other forms of energy </li></ul><ul><li>Biomass is a carbon neutral fuel </li></ul>
  4. 4. 100kW e Biomass Generator <ul><li>The Biomass Generator (BG100) is a new and highly efficient technology </li></ul><ul><li>It is capable of producing up to 100kW of renewable electricity and 150kW of renewable heat </li></ul>
  5. 5. BG100 <ul><li>100kW e / 150kW th </li></ul><ul><li>Containerised in two standard shipping containers </li></ul><ul><li>Easy to use controls </li></ul><ul><li>Computer controlled combustion </li></ul><ul><li>Remote monitoring of controls </li></ul>
  6. 6. Features <ul><li>Flexible fuel loading </li></ul><ul><li>Robust and variable fuel mechanism </li></ul><ul><li>Triple pass ceramic lined combustion zone </li></ul><ul><li>Step grate system with auto de asher </li></ul><ul><li>Indirect fired micro turbine </li></ul><ul><li>High speed, direct drive engine coupled to power electronics </li></ul><ul><li>Carbon neutral </li></ul>
  7. 7. Applications <ul><li>Farms </li></ul><ul><li>Large estates </li></ul><ul><li>Isolated buildings / communities </li></ul><ul><li>Woodworking & timber industries </li></ul><ul><li>Public buildings </li></ul><ul><li>Leisure facilities </li></ul><ul><li>Local authorities </li></ul>
  8. 8. Biomass Fuels <ul><li>The BG100 is capable of utilising a wide range of biomass fuels: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Forestry & agricultural residues </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Energy crops – Miscanthus (elephant grass), short rotation coppice willow & poplar </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Wood chips </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Wood pellets </li></ul></ul>
  9. 9. Potential Income <ul><li>Gross power price for 100kW of electricity </li></ul><ul><li>Renewables Obligation Certificates (ROCs) </li></ul><ul><li>Sale of 150kW of heat to nearby buildings </li></ul>
  10. 10. Farm Diversification <ul><li>The BG100 offers agricultural communities: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A much needed and viable diversification opportunity </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>An increase in competitiveness and sustainability </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Added value for crops </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>An effective end use for energy crops </li></ul></ul>
  11. 11. Carbon Emission Savings <ul><li>Carbon neutral fuel </li></ul><ul><li>Significant reduction in carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) emissions through the use of the BG100 </li></ul><ul><li>CO 2 emission savings for BG100, compared to fossil fuel fired energy production, are around 600 tonnes per year for each unit </li></ul><ul><li>Widespread uptake will greatly benefit the environment by reducing the amount of greenhouse gases that are being released into the atmosphere </li></ul>
  12. 12. Additional Advantages <ul><li>Grid connection is a very easy procedure </li></ul><ul><li>Any planning issues are simple to overcome </li></ul><ul><li>On site power production </li></ul><ul><li>Reduction of fuel transportation through the use of a local fuel source </li></ul>
  13. 13. NHS Trust Hospital - Whitchurch <ul><li>400kW maximum thermal output / 100kW minimum output </li></ul><ul><li>Utilising Green wood chip from a local supplier & their own forestry activities </li></ul><ul><li>Incorporating two Roll On Roll Off wood chip delivery systems </li></ul><ul><li>Providing hot water & heating for the hospital </li></ul>
