Low-carbon heat in the UK – is biomass heating a solution?

Delta-ee’s recent study for the UK Government looking at the current and future costs of biomass wood pellets got me thinking about how biomass fares as a genuine low-carbon heating solution for the UK.

The UK Committee on Climate Change states, “Decarbonising space and water heating is one of the biggest challenges for carbon budgets” - currently only 2% of buildings derive heat from low-carbon sources. This number needs to be a lot higher if the UK is to achieve its overall ambitious carbon reduction targets, but which low-carbon technology is best? Is biomass a key part of the solution for low-carbon heating in the UK?

Microgrids are coming – Are you getting left behind?

With an increasingly distributed energy system, rapidly falling energy storage costs, and a growing demand for flexibility and energy autonomy, microgrids are fast becoming a key topic of commercial relevance in many global markets. In short, microgrids are one of the hottest topics in the industry right now - and key players don’t want to be left out.

This post reflects on the findings that emerged from the three polls we conducted during our recent 'Microgrids are coming - how can you benefit?' webinar. With the highest number of registrants a Delta-ee webinar has ever had, this in itself says a lot about the level of interest surrounding the topic. If you missed the webinar, it is available to watch again on YouTube here.
