The sun is the original source of all energy in our solar system, including here on Earth.
Plant stock, or biomass is a natural way to store solar energy, which can be harvested and used to provide heat and even electricity.Even allowing for emissions of fossil carbon dioxide in planting, harvesting, processing and transporting the fuel, replacing fossil fuel with wood fuel will typically reduce net CO2 emissions by over 90%.
Biomass is a key component in the government’s roadmap toward sustainability.
This is demonstrated and supported by increased activity in the area of farming and pelletizing suitable plant stock here in the UK, as well as the generosity of the commercial and domestic Renewable Heat Incentive.
