Get Ready For The Biomass Surge
We can never be sure whether the increase in popularity of alternative energy is more the work of our perceived responsibilities towards saving our planet or simply the stark reality that we are going to save that much more money in the short and long term.
Biomass Boilers are another form of energy efficient alternatives that have been offered to us at a time of growing concern for both the environment and the bleak economic crisis that has affected our personal lives so distinctly and harshly.
Biomass Boilers are quite large in size compared with other alternative energy options being offered at present. They are run by organic material, as opposed to the feared fossil fuels, guaranteeing a lifetime supply. Experts have long warned that fossil fuels cannot be produced for eternity and an alternative had to be drawn up to ensure we continue to survive as a species, using natural resources rather than man-made and artificial.
To fuel Biomass Boilers different resources are used, for example recycled waste found in landfills. Others include sawdust or other wood derivatives. Obviously, because of the size of the boilers and the energy required to deliver heat to our homes, vast quantities are required but, as we know, there is no end to the resources required, to date.
Whilst it is true that Biomass fuel does occasionally increase in price, it is still a much cheaper alternative than fossil fuels and the price rises are minimal when compared to their pollutant equivalent. One has also got to consider that initial costs are still quite prohibitive but that rebates and selling of excess energy not utilised from these boilers will help to pay this off fairly quickly.
Government schemes have long favoured solar energy as the optimal resource to use and allotted millions of pounds in research costs and rebates, especially to suppliers, to try and offset the high costs required to install them. But after a few years, the officials have found that this system was open to abuse and was being taken advantage of, especially by businesses and farmers. For this reason, the tide has now favoured Biomass Boilers as one of the best options.
It also has a reputation as being one of the cheapest and cleanest alternatives around and does not dispel CO2 to the atmosphere as opposed to other options.
