The UK’s Aberdeen City and Shire has doubled its biomass capacity over the last two years to around 20MW of heat generation.

Nine new projects across the region have brought the number of operational wood fuel boilers to 200, with local fuel production to meet this demand in excess of 130,000 green tons equivalent.

Some of the new projects include: Aberdeen City Council’s iconic headquarters, Marischal College, which receives a quarter of its heat from a biomass boiler; Duthie Park Winters Gardens’ boilers, which heat the glasshouses, have been converted to wood chips.

Iain Todd, AREG’s chair of the grampian biomass working group, announced the figures at the recent All-Energy Business Breakfast.

He said, “An increase in projects across the north-east, doubling our capacity, only serves to underpin our commitment to establishing a variety of complimentary and sustainable fuel sources across the region.”
