Energy efficiency solutions company, Anesco, has claimed there is a growing number of firms, manufacturers and agricultural businesses signing up to a scheme that allows them to install biomass technology for free, while benefiting from reduced energy costs and carbon emissions.

Anesco, has reported seeing a rise in enquiries as the introduction of government schemes, such as Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) and Green Deal, sees the technology grow in popularity among both commercial and domestic markets.

Adrian Pike, CEO of Anesco, explained, “Biomass boilers can generate significant savings on energy bills, while helping businesses achieve their carbon commitment targets. With funding a top concern for organisations, our fully funded offering that allows businesses to install a brand new boiler free of charge, continues to prove popular.”

Through the Anesco scheme, organisations can receive the free supply and installation of an efficient, biomass boiler, including fuel storage, delivery systems, performance monitoring, annual services and maintenance. The cost of each installation is recouped by Anesco for its investors through the RHI payments.

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

Pike concluded, “Biomass boilers are particularly useful for organisations who have sizeable heating demands, such as nursing homes, hotels, large commercial units, leisure centres and poultry farms. Installing a system of this kind will bring significant financial savings.”
