Heating using wood pellets

To make it easier for architects, specifiers and builders to install heating systems fired by wood pellets, the Energy Crops Company has prepared its ‘Wood pellet design guide’. It provides information on all the practical aspects of wood-pellet heating, including system design, access, delivery, storage and installation — as well as a summary of relevant planning guidelines and financial support available. This guide is intended to be used by commercial and public-sector organisations of all sizes that are considering incorporating renewable fuels into their energy mix. It covers the specifics of installing wood-pellet boilers in new builds and the conversion of existing heating systems. There is practical advice on system design, equipment and maintenance. The guide includes detailed information about requirements for fuel delivery, handling, storage and access — so they can be incorporated into building design. It can be downloaded from:
