With the "Reformed" RHI currently on hold the existing RHI scheme will continue for the time being.  Ofgem have given details relating to non-domestic (commercial) RHI tariffs for biomass boiler installations/accreditations taking place from July 2017.

Non-domestic (Commercial) RHI scheme:
Small biomass (up to 199kW) reduced by 5%

Leading UK biomass heating specialist Ashwell Biomass were successful at the 2017 East Midlands Energy Efficiency & Healthy Homes Awards, picking the title of  RHI Installer of the Year as well as being Commended in the Small Scale Project of the Year

The aim of the Energy Efficiency & Healthy Homes Awards is to provide public recognition for the excellent work the Energy Efficiency sector is doing and to help encourage best practice within the Energy Industry.

Ashwell Biomass MD Barry West said he was "Delighted" with the evening, adding  "Energy efficiency and sustainability are both very important issues.  It is a great achievement for everyone in the company to receive recognition in this way and for the second year in succession.  The whole team works very hard to make sure we are successful."

With biomass heating being a relatively new technology in the UK ensuring prospective customers fully understand the facts remains a leading priority for Ashwell Biomass and this was an area highlighted by two of Ashwell's recent customers.  
"Ashwell explained all about biomass." said Mr Harris who Ashwell recently had a high efficiency wood pellet boiler installed to replace an old inefficient coal fired boiler, adding "It was obvious Ashwell had many years experience and knew their subject well."  
Mark Warton who had a large wood chip boiler installed along with a new increased efficiency heating system in commercial premises to replace an old inefficient boiler explained "We looked at a number of installers and chose Ashwell Biomass Ltd.  Although it is a large investment we are delighted with the decision..."

Ashwell Biomass is the UK's original biomass specialist and remains one of  the leading companies in the UK today.   Individuals and companies interested in biomass are encouraged to contact Ashwell for an informal discussion to see if and how biomass could work for them.

An Ashwell Biomass supplied and installed D'Alessandro biomass boiler has helped Glenuig Inn on the Sound of Arisaig to be named Micro Business of 2016 in the recent Vision in Business for the Environment of Scotland (VIBES) awards.

The Inn runs on 100% renewable energy and generates minimal waste which cannot be recycled or repurposed. This is the second time it has been awarded the accolade in the Micro-Business category, previously being in 2011. The Inn holds a Gold status from the Green Tourism Business Scheme and is described as Scotland’s exemplar green inn. It has also recently been voted Lochaber Business of the Year at the Highland Business Awards, and prides itself on enabling its visitors to enjoy the great outdoors amidst stunning scenery whilst enjoying excellent modern Scottish cuisine and comfortable accommodation in the knowledge that there is virtually zero impact to the environment.

Steve Macfarlane, Director, Glenuig Inn, said: "It’s always a challenge to do the right thing for the environment and even more so when we aim to provide excellence in all we do for all our guests; we’re open all day, every day, all year. We are delighted to have won a VIBES award again this year, as it is true recognition of our strong environmental commitment in everything we do.”

He went on to say, “as a 100% renewable business, with lower energy costs in winter than summer, we believe strongly in doing the right thing across all aspects of the business including minimising waste. We have recently perfected the ‘zero food waste to landfill’ process of drying our food waste before adding it to biomass as fuel (to be burnt in a biomass boiler), which is having a huge positive impact on the running of the Inn.”

This year, 32 Scottish businesses were shortlisted from a record number of entries. Each of the finalists underwent a rigorous judging process, including a programme of site visits, to assess their environmental practices.

Gillian Bruce, Chair of the VIBES Awards, commented: “The VIBES Awards recognise and showcase the fantastic work being undertaken by businesses across the country to put sustainability at the heart of their operations, often saving money in the process.

“We have been very impressed with the high standard of entries, and with a record number of companies entering the VIBES Awards this year it is encouraging to see that so many businesses understand how reducing their environmental impact can also benefit their business. We would like to congratulate all of our 2016 winners and finalists and hope that many more companies will be inspired to follow in their footsteps by recognising the benefits of sustainability in business.”
