Biomass Energy for the Agricultural & Horticultural Sectors
Biomass provides a sustainable and economical heating solution for the agriculture and horticulture sector, particularly if the distance to the nearest gas main is too great for a cost-effective connection or if using mains power just isn’t an option.
Biomass is well-suited to heat intensive applications such as poultry farms, hot house and glass house systems as it provides an on-demand and consistent source of energy, as opposed to other forms of often intermittent renewable energy.
Poultry farms in particular have benefitted from the dry heat that biomass boilers deliver into poultry sheds, improving the living environment for the birds by providing drier bedding, reducing disease and increasing crop yields.
Land Energy can also provide the benefits of its wood pellet production plant and supply chain expertise to provide a dependable supply of wood pellets, including the delivery of multi-year fixed price fuel supply contacts, enabling customers to have long-term visibility of fuel costs.
The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) continues to provide support to farmers needing to make the switch, please feel free to contact us to discuss the options and benefits.Read Our Moy Park Case Study
