Biomass - Economics
The following installation costs are for guidance only:
Systems vary considerably depending on choice of biomass product (Log or Pellet), choice of brand, size of property (75 - 300 square metres) and its heat loss, and the complexity of an installation. Prices for Log and Pellet systems typically range from £12,000 for smaller homes to £32,000 for larger homes / more complex installations.
Commercial buildings, their complexity and heat losses will vary greatly. System prices are typically:
£600 - £1,000 per kW of output
Currently, wood pellet is approximately 30% less expensive than oil. Wood chips and logs also generally costing less than most fossil fuels to buy. The greatest savings are made through fueling chip and log boilers by harvesting direct from woodland which makes then an especially popular choice with landowners and farmers.
The Renewable Heat Incentive is already operating for non-domestic installations and is scheduled to open for domestic applications in Spring 2014. Ofgem are administering both schemes and tariffs are payable for 20 years (non-domestic) and 7 years (domestic). RHI non-domestic tariffs are explained to the right, and RHI domestic tariffs are 12.2 pence per kWh..
