Renewable Energy (South Wales)
The heating and energy business in Wales is changing fast, technology is moving away from fossil fuels and closer to renewable energies as we look for more environmentally friendly ways to heat our homes and businesses. Whether you want to claim government RHI payments, not rely on the grid or just want to make your property greener please contact us.
Ground Source and Air Source heat pumps
Both technologies work using the ambient air or ground temperature to generate a heat difference in a fluid, then exchanging that heat using technology that’s effectively the reverse of refrigeration. It’s been established for over 80 years, but recent advances in technology means it’s now a seriously viable alternative to conventional heating methods, offering vastly increased efficiency over current Gas, Oil, LPG or electric power. When combined with proper insulation, effective and efficient radiators (or underfloor heating) and pipework, if it’s set-up/maintained correctly, it can be a viable fossil fuel replacement, for green heating, or an effective off-grid solution for isolated properties.
Biomass Heating Systems
There are both pros and cons of utilising biomass for energy. Here are a few to keep in mind:
Pros and cons of biomass
Pros of biomass
- Waste reduction
Cons of biomass
- High costs
- Space requirements
- Some adverse environmental impact
On the pros side, bioenergy is a widely available, reliable type of renewable energy. Harvesting biomass for electricity can also help us reduce waste. However, there are cons to consider: compared to other sources for electricity, biomass can be expensive to gather, transport, and store.
It remains a popular, green alternative to fossil fuels and simple modern technology exists to maximise its efficient use.
