Biomass Heat Trail Demo day

HWEnergy is holding the next in their series of popular Biomass Heat Trail Demonstration events at their Fort William HQ and would be delighted if you can join them.

Heat Trail picWith the UK Government’s commitment to the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), now’s the time to assess the benefits that biomass heating can bring to your organisation. This event is aimed at businesses that have a large heat demand (over £10k pa on heating) and provides a great opportunity to see biomass systems working in practice and get a good grasp of the key requirements for a successful installation.

The event is also of interest to architects, consultants, facilities managers and energy managers.

During the day you will be able to see first-hand how a range of local organisations including a high school, leisure centre, dental surgery, farm, and sheltered housing association have all cut their heating costs and carbon emissions by using automated wood fuel heating.

HWEnery_logo_As well as seeing their systems in operation, you’ll have the opportunity to speak to the system owners about their experiences of converting to biomass heat. A number of our experienced members of staff will also be on hand to help you understand more about the RHI and to discuss how you could achieve substantial cost and carbon savings.

The Biomass Heat Trail runs from 10am to 2pm. It is completely free to attend and includes breakfast and a tasty lunch.

If you would like to attend please call Alasdair Miles, on 01397 706412 or email
