Simon Holden is Euroheat’s chairman
Q: What have you got planned for the rest of the year?
Keep up with our ever expanding work load. The commercial RHI has been very good for business. As the winter kicks in and understanding about the domestic version of this scheme increases, we expect enquiries to go up in this area too.
Q: What do you see as the growth area in renewables?
Biomass we hope! Our main customer base at the moment is rural businesses, farmers and large home owners. The domestic RHI’s returns on biomass make it a very attractive and affordable proposition for a wider group of people; homes that may not have considered renewable technologies in the past. Savvy customers will also see its investment potential – if you’ve got £30,000 to spend better put it into biomass and the RHI than the bank.
Q: How is your company cutting its carbon footprint?
We practice what we preach at Euroheat and heat all our offices, factory and training centre with our own biomass boilers. We’re currently coming to the end of completing the whole system, which consists of an HDG 150kW Compact chip boiler and an HDG 45kW Compact pellet boiler, linked to the buildings through district mains. We chose two boilers to ensure optimum efficiency, switching the larger one off in the summer when central heating isn’t needed.
