Government advisers on climate change have said that the UK cannot meet its renewable energy targets to cut greenhouse gases without using biomass, and the technology could supply of tenth of the country’s energy by 2050.
The Committee on Climate Change said that biomass is needed and can be used in a number of ways to benefit the environment including using waste woodchip from tree surgery in large wood-burning boilers and equipping buses to run on old cooking oil.
As well as mentioning larger industrial sizes projects, the Committee highlighted effective smaller scale measures including the use of biomass boilers. Installing a wood chip or wood pellet and log boiler in your home can not only help you reduce your carbon footprint but could also save you significant amounts of money on your energy bills which is why more homeowners are making the decision to install these types of renewable energy in their home.
However if you find that this renewable energy source is not suited for your home, there are a number of other options available to you to help you cut your energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint. From solar panels to ground source heat pumps using a borehole to air source heat pumps, there are a wide range of options available so you are sure to find a renewable energy source which will suit your home.
