Biomass Heating

‘Taking the heat’ (guide number CTG061) provides advice on how to make material carbon savings and potentially reduce heating costs. It covers lessons learned from using biomass heating in low carbon buildings, and includes:
• What is biomass heating?
• Why choose biomass?
• Assessing feasibility - how to estimate your heat demand and supply
• Design, procurement and installation
• Ensuring best performance

‘Taking the heat’ is part of the ‘Sharing our experience’ series. These booklets provide advice and tips to help you plan, build and manage cost-effective low carbon buildings that really work to save you money and carbon. The insights are based on real data from 28 case studies from the Department of Energy and Climate Change’s Low Carbon Buildings Programme and The Carbon Trust's work on refurbishments. The projects cover many sectors including retail, education, offices and mixed use residential buildings.
