2 About CEN CEN is a growing environmental organisation of around 80 people. Founded in 1997 our mission is to: nAlleviate fuel poverty nProvide environmental benefit through CO 2 reduction nDevelop the market for energy efficiency and renewable energy To date we have: nLifted over 4,000 people out of fuel poverty nOffset over 100 million kg of CO2 with over £15,000,000 of installed energy efficiency improvements nImplemented nearly 100 community scale renewable energy installations in London and the SE

3 CEN Biomass Services Project implementation services: Site assessments & feasibility studies System design and financial appraisals Grant funding and planning support Tendering for biomass installation Tendering & negotiating fuel supply contracts General work: Developing fuel supply chains and infrastructure Training, education and promotion Masterplanning & district heating Resource assessments

4 Clean Air Act Originally enacted in the 1950s to combat the smogs Prohibits the emission of dark smoke Smoke control areas – where are they?

7 Moisture content %Wood Net CV GJ/t %GJ/tkWh/tkWh per 45.4kgBoiler rating (kW) 5%17.924, %16.844, %14.684, %12.523, %10.362, %8.202, %6.041, What is 45.4kg/hr in real money? Note: This calculation assumes an 85% efficient boiler.

8 Planning Permission Planning permission is not normally required for biomass systems as long as the work is internal. There may be complications if: Chimney / flue is unusually high / unusually located You need a new building / plant room / fuel store Conservation area / World Heritage Site / Listed building
