How HWEnergy can work with you
Design, build, install of biomass heating and CHP systems
We have been specialising in biomass heating since 2003 so have extensive experience of all types of projects. We have designed, installed and now maintain biomass boilers in 3*, 4* and 5* star hotels, holiday parks, leisure centres, outdoor activity centres and adventure centres.
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; 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 energy services include:
Wood fuel supply – wood chip and pellet
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 believe in staying local so that transport miles are kept to a minimum and response times are guaranteed.
Biomass system service and maintenance
Our Service and Maintenance team is one of the largest in the sector and crucially, they only work in wood energy which means they have extensive expertise in all aspects of biomass boilers and biomass heating systems. Engineers are based regionally meaning quick response times and they are supported by our head office team who can monitor boiler performance remotely 24 hours a day. As well as servicing systems for our own clients we also take on contracts for biomass heating systems installed by others.
Biomass heat supply
Our Heat Supply contract is becoming increasingly popular and is made possible through our comprehensive network of fuel supply partners and our engineers based throughout the country. Essentially a Biomass Heat Supply contract means we take care of every aspect of your biomass boiler and wider system, from fuel, to regular monitoring and servicing to RHI reporting, saving you time and money in managing the system yourselves. We charge on an agreed amount per kWh of heat provided and we support this with performance guarantees so that you have complete peace of mind. That means you can carry on your everyday business without having to worry about managing your heat and hot water supply.
RHI (Renewable Heat Incentive_ applications
We complete non-domestic RHI applications on behalf of all our clients and can also do so for businesses who have used other biomass boiler 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.
Renewable energy finance and ESCO options
Payback periods for commercial biomass installations are frequently between 5 & 7 years but will vary from project to project. A number of companies provide capital loans for biomass boilers and CHP systemsand we can provide details of those that do. Another option is to work with HWEnergy on an ESCO (Energy Savings Company) basis. An ESCO means you don’t have any capital expenditure and we fund the entire project. You receive the benefits of cost and carbon savings against existing fuel but not the RHI (Renewable Heat Incentive) payments . These stay linked to the equipment which remains the property of HWEnergy. We can provide an analysis of the financial picture for both options.
