Solar & Wind Cheaper To Replace Coal In UK Than Biomass

Joshua S Hill for CleanTechnica:  A new study has concluded that transitioning to wind and solar power would be a cheaper option for the United Kingdom to replace its coal fleet than using biomass electricity generation.

According to a new study published this week by the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and conducted by London-based Vivid Economics, which examined the full system costs of renewable energy technologies like wind and solar in comparison to biomass as a replacement for the UK’s coal fleet, wind and solar came out as the cheaper option.

The UK already uses a lot of biomass for electricity generation, with the report concluding that “biomass supplies the lion’s share” of the country’s renewable electricity generation. However, as the authors of the report note:

“…recent science shows that many forms of biomass produce more carbon emissions than fossil fuels like coal and natural gas—especially biomass from forests—increasing carbon pollution precisely when the United Kingdom aims to rapidly decarbonise its electricity sector.”  Cont'd...

Parker Hannifin Biogas Dehumidification System

Parker Hannifin Biogas Dehumidification System

The selection of effective biogas treatment equipment is important, both in optimizing the cogeneration of electrical and thermal energy, making the most of the available renewable energy, and reducing energy consumption and operating. Parker's solution is to dry the gas, firstly by cooling using a water-cooled heat exchanger working with an air-cooled water chiller and secondly, by removing the condensed water with a cyclonic water separator. The cooled gas can then be reheated to reduce the relative humidity and thus meet the technical demands of gas engines, turbines and other downstream equipment.
