Those attending will be able to see Earley Ornamentals’ recently installed 950kW system in action which heats 6 acres of glasshouse plant growing space.  

It will also give businesses, particularly those in the horticulture sector, looking for a cost-effective alternative to fossil fuels an opportunity to quiz those operating biomass boilers on a day-to-day basis. Also attending is boiler suppliers Ashwell Biomass, Stockbridge Technology Centre and biomass installers EBTech Solutions. There will also be representatives from the NFU and Horticultural Trades Association.
