If you are considering non-domestic biomass heating then it’s likely you will have heard about the Scottish Government’s targets for Renewable Energy and Resource Efficiency but we thought it might be useful to provide a brief refresher.
The Scottish Government has long been focused on decreasing the country’s reliance on fossil fuels and encouraging the take up of renewable energy for heating and hot water.
It has laid out clear targets for the next 5 years and beyond with a push on the public sector, being major energy users, to lead the way.
The set targets are:
- Reduce emissions of greenhouse gases by at least 42% by 2020 and at least 80% by 2050.
- Meet at least 30% of total annual energy demand from renewable sources by 2020.
- A 12% reduction in Scotland’s final energy consumption by 2020. This establishes a minimum level of ambition for all sectors, including the public sector.
- Delivery of 11% of non-electrical heat demand from renewable sources by 2020.
HWEnergy were heavily involved when the Scottish Government’s Procurement Framework for Biomass for the Public Sector was established and we work with organisations of all types helping them reduce their energy demand from non renewable sources. Whether you are a company involved in manufacturing, hospitality, horticulture, food and drink or are a public sector organisations we can provide a no obligation assessment of the benefits of biomass heating to you.
