To promote the Earsdon Renewable Energy biomass projects in St Albans Church and Eccles Hall, a film has been commissioned by a professional film maker, Will Sadler of Arpeggio films.

The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) funded the film, which you can view here.

The short film aims to raise awareness of renewable energy in general and showcase a range of renewable technologies installed into listed buildings with heritage status.

This project includes the installation of a 100kW Guntamatic Powerchip biomass heating system, buffer tank, biomass fuel store and underground insulated pipe into St. Albans Church.

It looks at how better heat distribution of the biomass heat as well as the fuel cost saving, once basics such as insulation are covered resulted in happy and warm churchgoers. Great care had to be taken running the underground pipe and trenching as it had to go through a graveyard, where great care had to be taken not to disturb any graves or headstones.

The Guntamatic Powerchip runs on wood chips, wood pellets, grain or miscanthus, which gives the project the flexibility to change between fuel types over the coming years.

The Department of Energy and Climate Change funded the film. Thanks to producer/director Will Sadler of Arpeggio films and St. Alban's PCC.
