In the latest figures for December 2013 released by Ofgem, small scale biomass boilers (up to 199kW) continues to dominate the numbers of commercial renewable heat systems fitted and accredited under the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).
As of December 31, 2013, 3,212 small scale biomass systems had applied, of which 2,280 had been accredited and 1,867 already receiving payments. Combined, this gives a total installed capacity of 613MW, or 207,293MWh of heat generated in a year.
This is followed by medium scale biomass (200kW up to 1MW), with 515 applications, 416 accreditations and 4,96MW of installed capacity, or some 295,265MWh of generated heat.
Small scale biomass makes up some 78% of the commercial RHI installations, with medium scale making up 14%. These two groups remain the most popular areas for renewable heat, and are continuing to grow. Treco is very much a specialist in these two ranges, with over 600 biomass installations and 100 successful RHI applications on behalf of our clients to date.
Treco has a range of options and boiler systems to suit small and medium scale biomass, and you can see typical cast studies here.
