Anesco launches free biomass boilers for commercial market

Anesco is helping businesses to green up their energy credentials after launching a new scheme to provide fully funded biomass boiler installations.

Under the scheme, organisations can receive the free supply and installation of an ETA biomass boiler, including fuel storage, delivery systems, performance monitoring and annual services.

As well as coming at zero cost to an organisation, firms will benefit from substantially reduced heating bills. Savings on these bills will range from 30 per cent to 50 per cent , with properties that currently run on oil or LPG-based systems reaping the greatest rewards.

The scheme is particularly beneficial for medium to large size facilities which have sizeable heating demands each day, such as nursing homes, hotels, large commercial units and leisure centres.

Adrian Pike, CEO of Anesco, explained: “Funding is always difficult for some organisations, so we’ve been able to pull together an innovative fully funded offering, to help businesses install a brand new boiler free of charge.

“As we developed our ESCO model, which looks at every aspect of an organisations operations and how their buildings function, we found there is a distinct need to provide a greener way to heat buildings.

“Biomass energy is a cost effective solution to this and with the UK’s unique Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme launched by the Department of Energy Climate Change, this provides a visionary way of implementing such technology at no cost to the client.”

The cost of each installation is recouped by Anesco for its investors through the Renewable Heating Incentive (RHI) scheme, which is a government reward initiative that makes payments for heat generated from renewable sources.

Organisations signing up to the scheme will receive an ETA biomass boiler from leading manufacturer Innasol, who is Anesco’s chosen supplier for the initiative.

Pike added: “The free biomass boiler installations will provide a green energy solution, while bringing saving on energy bills and helping organisations achieve their carbon commitment targets.”
