Comprehensive options including Heat Supply
Design, build, install
We have been specialising in commercial biomass boilers and associated heating systems since 2003 and have extensive experience of all types of projects.
We are one of the few wood energy companies to have our own in house Design Engineering team. Our Projects and Civils teams are also in house.That means we have full control and you have full accountability and one point of contact which makes a big difference when it comes to smooth delivery of a project. Our biomass services include:
We have an extensive network of wood chip and wood pellet fuel suppliers around the country who work to our strict quality control standards and who we manage on your behalf. We are a preferred supplier on the Scottish Government’s wood pellet framework.
Service and maintenance
Our Service and Maintenance team is one of the largest in the sector and only work in biomass heating systems. Engineers are based regionally meaning quick response times and are supported by remote diagnostics which feed directly from boiler installations through to head office. We have a range of biomass service options from fully comprehensive to light touch and can adjust to your needs. We service most types of commercial wood chip and wood pellet boilers.
Due to the scale of our network of engineers and fuel supply partners our biomass energy Heat Supply contract is becoming increasingly popular. Essentially we take care of every aspect of your wood fuel heating, from providing wood chip and wood pellet, to regular biomass boiler servicing to RHI (Renewable Heat Incentive) reporting which means we save you time and money. We charge an agreed amount per kWh of heat provided and crucially, we support this with performance guarantees. That means you can carry on your everyday business without having to worry about managing your heat and hot water supply.
Non-Domestic RHI (Renewable Heat Incentive) applications
We complete commercial RHI applications on behalf of all our clients and can also do so for businesses who have used other installers. We have an excellent track record in this area and can advise you on how best to meet the stipulations and requirements of the scheme.
HWEnergy Smart Heat Metering
We install smart heat metering units which provide accurate, half hourly reporting on the performance of your biomass boiler accessible from your own PC, wherever you happen to be. Our HWEnergy Smart Metering units provide an exceptionally accurate record of the performance of your biomass heating system including flow temperature, return temperature, heat consumption and volume.
Finance and ESCO options
Payback periods for commercial biomass heating systems are frequently between 5 & 7 years but will vary from project to project. A number of companies provide capital loans for biomass boilers and we can provide details of those that do. Another option is to work with HWEnergy on an ESCO (Energy Service Company) basis. An ESCO means you receive the benefits of cost and carbon savings against existing fuel but not the RHI payments. These stay linked to the equipment which remains the property of HWEnergy.
