One of the UK's leading biomass experts is to speak at a Renewable Energy Association (REA) seminar on the Government's cash support for the technology.


Paul Clark, Managing Director of biomass technology experts Rural Energy, is widely respected throughout the industry for his knowledge and passion for renewable energy.

His key areas of expertise include specialist biomass combustion and controls, biomass fuel transfer design and building services design.

The event, focusing on the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), will take place on July 15 at Burges Salmon in New Street Square, London, and is open to members and non-members of the REA.

Rural Energy, a Myriad CEG company, is based in the East Midlands and is one of the UK's most experienced biomass installers.

Paul, who has more than ten years' experience in biomass, is one of a number of top speakers at the seminar, which will also include Katy Read of energy watchdog Ofgem.

It will deliver the basics of RHI along with practical guidance on getting accredited – and how to avoid common mistakes.

Paul and other speakers from the industry will take participants through their real world experiences of the scheme – and look forward to the likely changes and developments over the next 12 months.

The REA says RHI has "had a slow start" but is delivering for one technology – biomass boilers.

It adds that 95% of heat generated to date comes from biomass, with boilers below 1MWth providing three quarters of that figure.

Paul said: "I am looking forward to taking part in what promises to be a lively and very informative event, focusing on the growing benefits that biomass technology can bring.

"My aim is to make the technology easy for people to understand, highlight why the choice of the right boiler and system is so crucial and share thoughts about this growing form of renewable energy.

"This is a great opportunity to share information about biomass technology and to look at the benefits that the RHI can bring to companies and organisations as they look to meet their energy needs."

Specialising in systems for every kind of application, the Rural Energy team offers unrivalled technological expertise and customer service.

Its clients include local authorities, health providers, education authorities and the National Trust.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
