The global biomass boiler market is set to grow considerably in the coming years, displaying a compound annual growth rate of 17.9 per cent. This is according to Research Nester, which is estimating that by 2024, the worldwide biomass boiler market will be worth $10.8 billion. There are a number of factors that will boost its take up, the organisation suggested. Chief … [Read more...] about Biomass Boiler Market Set For Growth
The British Government may take a leaf out of our neighbours’ book, as its French counterpart is incentivising biomass heating installations and ground source heat pumps for low income families. Connexion France reported that French environment minister Nicolas Hulot is making energy efficient homes a top priority for the country, ahead of the imminent budget … [Read more...] about Will Government Incentivise Biomass Heating?
By side-lining emerging technology, often powered by biomass heating, that produces not only electricity but heat too, the UK government’s energy scheme will miss out on astronomical savings, according to a new report. The UK’s capacity market auction is ignoring the efforts of combined heat and power (CHP), which is affecting businesses options in cutting both costs and … [Read more...] about UK Energy Scheme Missing Huge Savings, Says Report
