Biomass

Biomass is a form of stored solar energy and is available in a number of different forms. These include wood, straw, energy crops, sewage sludge, waste organic materials and animal litter.
Although burning biomass releases carbon dioxide to the atmosphere, this is offset by the carbon dioxide absorbed in the original growth of the biomass, or captured in the growth of new biomass to replace the materials used. As a result, using biomass for heating/electricity generation results in very low net ‘lifecycle’ carbon emissions relative to conventional sources of heating, such as gas, heating oil or electricity.

Technology (biomass/biogas and waste to energy power)

The technology to convert the biomass resource into useful heat and/or power (e.g. anaerobic digestion/pyrolysis/gasification/combustion, gas turbines/reciprocating engines/boiler-steam turbine plant) is diverse and needs careful selection to achieve efficient and reliable performance in a cost effective manner. Is is supported on a small scale via the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), Feed in tariffs (FITs) and on a larger scale via Renewable Obligation Certificates (ROCs)
