Biomass is a type of fuel that produces energy by burning plant and animal matter such as trees, animal by-products, and general waste products.
Wood remains the most commonly used biomass fuel, and is used to power systems that typically convert the energy into heat for water and space heating.
In terms of both installation and running costs, biomass has the lowest capital cost of all renewable energy technologies. Wood fuel is also a carbon neutral resource and can make a significant contribution to meeting the UK's commitment to reducing carbon dioxide emissions.
With concerns about sustainable fuel resources and climate change now driving government policy, there is an increasingly mainstream requirement for this type of technology.
As a result, biomass schemes are often eligible for financial support from regional, national and European funding programmes, funding which Vital Energi is experienced in accessing.
Vital Energi is one of the UK's leading developers of biomass and we have successfully imported technologies and know-how from the Scandinavian market. Through strategic partnerships with some of Denmark's most experienced energy consultants and engineers, Vital Energi is currently pioneering a new breed of biomass technology solutions in the UK.
One such project is the UK's largest biomass wood-fired community heating scheme at Oban, in Scotland, which recently received the Green Energy Award for 'Best Renewables Project'.
