Not all biomass fuel is wood

It is difficult to read anything about renewable heat without seeing the word ‘biomass’ inextricably linked with wood. In fact, they are often used interchangeably:  “I have a biomass boiler”, “oh, so you heat with wood” etc. The definition of biomass encompasses sources of fuel that are much greater than simple parlance suggests.

RHI Reforms - emergency legislation

We have received an update on the reforms from Renewable Energy Association in light of the general election announcement.

BEIS aims to lay emergency legislation before parliament to extend degression trigger lines and update Microgeneration Certification Scheme standards on heat pumps. They want to do this prior to parliament being dissolved on 3rd May so that it can take effect before the next degression announcement at the end of May.
