The Stockport Homes biomass district heating programme was implemented between and , and comprises seven separate biomass schemes heating over 2, social rented high rise flats. Stockport Homes purchase 6, tonnes of wood chips per year and developed the biomass programme as a wider remit of ECO funded works, including over-cladding and window replacement. Our roles were to examine the performance and efficiency of the schemes, to resolve practical and contractual issues associated with the supply of wood fuel, and to examine opportunities for in-house wood fuel production and supply. Concerns over the cost and procurement of biomass have been expressed politically and in the local media, so we have been benchmarking the seven schemes to UK-wide industry norms, and seeking ways to ensure the contracts that underpin the schemes meet best practices. We used our experience of working for DECC on the UK wide performance and efficiency of biomass schemes to help inform this work. An in-house wood fuel production facility using nearby urban and amenity woodlands as a source of wood fuel is certainly characteristic of this approach.

Home The Group. Ecovillages are intentional communities which aim to live according to the principles of sustainability. They promote peaceful relationships, cooperation with nature, spiritual awareness, and sustainability on all levels. They aim to set an example as an alternative way of living which will help to bring an end to the wasteful consumerist lifestyle led by most in the west and to prevent further environmental degradation and pollution caused by our industrialised lifestyles.
The boiler is expected to use approximately tonnes of G50 wood chip per year to produce around MWh of heat. A purpose built energy centre was built to house the plant room, fuel hopper and bulk chip storage. Estate timber is stored by the energy centre and chipped directly into the bulk storage bays.
Treco has designed, installed, commissioned and maintained hundreds of biomass boiler heating systems nationally. Do get in touch if you would like to organise a visit to a Treco installation in your area to see it for yourself. Furniture manufacturer reduces disposal costs whilst gaining RHI payments with biomass boiler installation. As part of the Tata Global Beverages sustainability agenda, a biomass solution was chosen for Tetley Tea's facilities. Holiday park looked to Treco to provide the best green energy solution for its 4, sq ft complex.
