It may appear to be a confusing process when it comes to sourcing quality wood fuel pellets for your business’s biomass boiler. But it doesn’t have to be.
There is information available on the Business Utility Hub website to help explain what the various criteria for wood pellets are and what the manufacturing standards are for them.
The most important issue when sourcing quality wood pellets are to appreciate that they really should meet the ENplus A1 standard in order to generate the expected levels of energy.
In addition, these pellets will be meeting the best criteria and have been made from quality materials so you can be reassured that the supplier is meeting the required standards. And this is very important for a number of reasons.
Sourcing biomass wood pellets
The most important reason when sourcing biomass wood pellets are for them to have the ENplus mark because if you are registered under the non-domestic Renewable Heat Incentive then your payments will be reliant upon using these top-quality pellets. Using poor quality pellets may jeopardise your RHI payments.
Also, when sourcing quality biomass wood pellets, the task has been made easier thanks to the Biomass Suppliers List (BSL) which is compiled by the government of suppliers who meet the relevant criteria and offer quality biomass fuels as a result. The Business Utility Hub also uses suppliers from this list.
While you can shop around the various biomass fuel suppliers, it will save time and trouble if you speak with the team at the Business Utility Hub as they have access to the best deals, regardless of where you are in the UK and your order size.
These last two issues may prove interesting if you live in a remote area and find a potential cheap supplier online but who then reveals they may not be able to deliver to your premises. Also, the larger size of biomass fuel tends to be the cheaper ones.
Wood pellets blown delivery
So, if you can have wood pellets blown delivery then it’s likely you’ll enjoy a quality fuel at the best prices so your biomass costs will be cheaper than when buying pellets in bags.
However, not everyone appreciates what wood pellets blown delivery is and this is where the pellets are blown from the delivery truck, down a pipe and directly into the firm’s fuel store. From there, there’s a hopper system to feed the biomass boiler automatically.
There are growing numbers of firms and organisations, including schools and care homes, who are using biomass boilers and have a requirement for a large biomass fuel delivery so they will be geared up to accepting wood pellets blown delivery whenever necessary.
