  3. 3. Biomass boilers in Bristol<br />Blaise Nursery – 1st biomass boiler in Bristol in 2006 supplied from council’s own tree surgery waste<br />Incorporating a wood fuel station to process tree surgery waste into wood fuel for further Bristol biomass boiler installations<br />Installation of biomass boilers as part of BSF School refurb and retrofit to other sites<br />Bristol by end of 2011 will have the largest biomass boiler cluster in the SW and 2nd largest in England<br />Using own Wood fuel supply from own resources, to expand use of biomass boilers at the lowest cost<br />

  9. 9. 50kW Solar PV<br />
  10. 10. Case Study 2 – Medium PV<br />49kW unit Cost: £149,000 (£3,000 per kWp)<br />FIT repayments - £14,000 per annum<br />Energy generation saving - £2,000 per annum<br />Simple Payback – 9 Years<br />With borrowing @5.5% – 14 years<br />BCC payback (with free elec for school) – 16 years<br />Only 18 years (ish) if include cleaning, inverter replacement, maintenance<br />CO2 saving – 25 tonnes<br />Cost per tonne of CO2 – £6,080<br />
  11. 11. BiomassFonthill Primary School<br />
  12. 12. Case Study 3 – Biomass<br />300kW unit Cost: £450,000 <br />RHI repayments - £20,000 per annum<br />Energy generation saving (oil to wood fuel) £23,000 per annum<br />Simple Payback – 10 Years<br />With borrowing @5.5% – 16 years<br />Includes cleaning and servicing<br />CO2 Saving – 180 tonnes<br />Cost per tonne of CO2 - £2,500<br />
  13. 13. BCC Plan of Action<br />Solar PV on Schools Programme<br />£1 million of Prudential Borrowing<br />Free PV with free Elec to school BUT school must:<br />Agree to install energy efficiency measures<br />Agree to energy awareness programme with staff and pupils<br />Hope to see savings of 25 tonnes per Primary School rather than 2-5 tonnes if PV only<br />
