Moving away from fossil fuels, we will need to find alternatives to coal, oil and gas for heating our homes and offices. One obvious solution is biomass - typically in the form of wood.
 
To the right are photos of typical materials to be used in biomass which will have a sustainable outcome.
 
It is a renewable fuel that truly "grows on trees" and it can be produced locally and sustainably - as long as a new tree is planted for every tree that is cut down. Burning wood biomass emits CO2 through the chimney, but as growing trees absorb CO2 from the atmosphere biomass can be a nearly carbon neutral source of fuel as long as trees are replanted.
 
Batch log boilers and pellet boilers offer more convenient and efficient ways to heat with wood fuel than traditional stoves.
 
To the right are traditional hoppers and boilers which show the process and components of how to create energy through sustanable methods.

Cost
The price will vary according to the specification of the boiler. for an average sized house, a basic log boiler might cost about £3,000, while one with a higher standard of controls might be £6,000. A pellet-fired boiler could cost £9,000.
Suppliers
The market for wood biomass fuel is developing very rapidly at the moment, and new biomass fuel businesses keep on emerging.
 
The websites that can be helpful to find suppliers include HETAS, the NEF'sLogPile database, and the UK Pellet Council
Finacial Support
The government's Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) offers support for domesticand non-domestic installations.
 
Support for domestic biomass heating installations
 
Support for non-domestic biomass installations
Why
Biomass fuels include wood, energy crops such as oilseed rape or miscanthus (‘elephant grass’), animal wastes and other agricultural by-products such as straw and grain husks.
The products used here all grow back and when they do they need C02 to live, this recycles it and keeps it sustainable
