Save money. Time. And the environment.

Renewable energy systems are very efficient, durable, clean and easy to use, typically requiring low maintenance and minimal management time.

Biomass Energy Systems

Biomass is a the term loosely used for the different types of wood used in wood-burning boiler and stoves. Common type of biomass used as a heating source is wood pellets, wood chip, or logs. Biomass boilers, are used in place of a regular gas, oil or electric boiler and are used for both heating and for hot water.

Biomass boilers are very efficient, durable, clean and easy to use, requiring minimal management time. Biomass is an ideal replacement for an existing boiler powered by gas, oil or LPG. It will provide a very similar of control and reliability but with reduced running costs, particularly when compared to oil or LPG, not to mention being far more environmentally friendly than an oil or gas fired system . A new boiler can be easily connected to your existing heating system with very little or no disruption to your premises. Biomass is a brilliant cost-effective heating solution for today, and the future.

Our biomass boilers are provided by ETA, the market leader for biomass energy and heating systems. ETA specialises in high quality, no expense spared biomass appliances. Their market leading products offer maximum efficiency, sophisticated control systems and user friendly interfaces in a package, we believe, is second to none. ETA provide sustainable solutions for all types of homes and businesses looking to utilise the very latest biomass technology, from small organisations to large commercial and industrial enterprises. We have a range of Biomass boilers from 7kw – 500Kw.

Renewable Heat Incentive

Through the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), non-domestic system owners enjoy income and savings based returns of between 10-25% guaranteed for 20 years when installing a biomass boiler.

The main type of Biomass boiler used in domestic systems is the wood-pellet type. A pellet store or silo houses an amount of pellets which is automatically fed into the boiler when required. The boiler burns the wood and the heat is transferred to water via a heat-exchanger, and this in turn is fed to a thermal store where it can be used for radiators, underfloor heating and domestic hot water.

Solar Energy Panels

PV (PhotoVoltaic) Solar Panels

Solar PV provides an excellent alternative investment opportunity for both commercial premises and the agricultural sector. Farms or businesses with high energy spend are able to make significant savings by reducing their electricity bills whilst simultaneously generating an income via the government Feed-in Tariff (FiT). You can expect to achieve returns of up to 20% and your business will be future proofed against rising electricity prices.

Solar Thermal

  • Solar Thermal systems can meet 100% of your hot water needs in summer; 70% over the year
  • Generates income: qualifies for Renewable Heat Incentive
  • Lighter carbon footprint: at least 750kg less CO² emissions per year

Installing a Solar Thermal system can help you save on fuel bills, cut carbon emissions and enable you to take advantage of the Commercial Renewable Heat Incentive.

How does it work?

Solar collectors use energy from the sun to heat water which is then stored in a hot water cylinder. The collector takes the form of panels or evacuated tubes generally fitted to the roof of a building. Advanced coatings on the glazing of the panels maximise the absorption of heat. Solar thermal systems are great for generating hot water and can also be used very effectively to heat swimming pools.

Sunlight is free, so once the system is installed, your hot water costs will be reduced. Solar hot water is a green, renewable heating system and doesn’t release any harmful carbon dioxide or other pollutants.

Benefits at a glance

  • Turn unused roof space, land or even reservoirs into income generating assets
  • Reduce current energy spend and future proof your business against rising electricity prices
  • Lower your carbon emissions and advance your green credentials
  • Minimal ongoing maintenance required

Financial Rewards

  • Benefit from a combined annual return on investment of up to 20%
  • Generate the FiT income, index linked to inflation for the next 20 years
  • Profit from the sale of unused electricity produced back to the grid
  • Take advantage of higher rate AIAs for accelerated tax relief if installed in 2015
  • Lower your carbon taxes

Air & Ground Source
Heat Pumps

Heat pumps offer a self-contained and surprisingly efficient alternative to conventional oil or gas boiler heating systems. There are two different types, air source and ground source, each with its own set of benefits. Heat pumps use a very small amount of energy to move heat from one location to another.

They can transport heat out of the air or ground to heat a home or a corporate building. And cleverly, they can be reversed to do the opposite – cool the place down. Think of it like a smarter version of an air conditioning unit, because you don’t need to install a separate system to heat up, or cool down.

The form of renewable energy best suited to your home is dependent on a number of circumstances such as your energy usage, ground conditions, budget, location etc … Our renewable energy experts will survey your home and recommend the solution that bests meets your unique set of circumstances.

Dual Source ‘Link-Up’
Heating Systems

‘A linked heating system (also known as link-up) is one where multiple heat sources are combined. This can dramatically reduce fuel bills whilst maintaining the convenience of a conventionally fuelled boiler.

The whole system can be linked to other alternative fuels such as solar heating to help reduce heating costs. Combining this with a thermal store also lets you easily link up different heat sources. A classic combination is a woodburning boiler stove (winter heating and hot water), solar panels (summer hot water) and a conventional boiler (to provide a back up). Other sources can also include a ground or air source heat pump, an electrical heating element or a wood pellet stove.

This is a specialised activity and must only be undertaken by qualified and experienced heating engineers. A poorly set up link system will not deliver the energy savings and may also be dangerous.

We at Gibson & Goold are experts in the design and installation of such sytems.

Renewable Heat Incentive

The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is a Government-backed scheme designed to financially reward those who use renewable energy and make it worth your while to produce renewable heat.

Gibson & Goold can help businesses to access this fund and benefit from the earnings that can be generated through installing renewable heating systems.

The Renewable Heat Incentive is calculated by rates per kWh for commercial installation, the defining category being the size in kW of the generator.
