Whilst we continue to create energy milestones, such as the UK not using any coal to generate electricity for 18 days, renewable heat generation is not making the same headlines.
It will support projects including renewable energy, energy efficiency as well as electrification of heat and transport
Biomass could play a pivotal role in heat decarbonisation and help the UK meet its renewable heat targets, AMP Clean Energy said today. Around 6% of heat in the UK currently comes from renewable sources, but EU targets require it to double to 12% by 2020. The Renewable Energy Association (REA) report ‘Bioenergy in the […]
The Renewable Energy Association says the sustainable use of bioenergy is vital to the UK meeting its legally-binding Fifth Carbon Budget
Assystem is developing a machine able to withstand large levels of heat and radiation to remove impurities from plasma and replace components
A feasibility study will look into whether the project is viable from a technical and financial perspective
Bioenergy is the little-known leader of British renewables. That was the declaration made by the REA following the first instalment of its Bioenergy Strategy Review.
The Energy Technologies Institute has now published the outcomes from the first phase of its Smart Systems and Heat programme
So, what is the Biomass Trilemma? Put simply there are three key issues at play: the policy landscape, air quality and the importance of heat decarbonisation.
Engineers say air source heat pumps could be used to draw warm air from the railway’s tunnels and direct it into households
