Feasibility Study for a Biomass to Energy Scheme

Feasibility Study for a Biomass to Energy Scheme

Stopford was commissioned by a global defence company to assess the viability of using a biomass gasification CHP technology for the generation of heat and power at one of their manufacturing facilities. On assessment of on-site energy demand, taking into account peak and baseload, a heat and mass balance was conducted for candidate gasification technologies to estimate the mass of biomass required to satisfy on-site power and heat demand. A flexible financial model was then generated for the proposed scheme accounting for cost of feedstock, OPEX, CAPEX, electricity savings, gas savings, export potential and Government incentives including Renewable Obligation Incentives (ROCs), Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) and the Climate Change Levy (CCL). Achievable reductions in carbon emissions were also calculated. Finally utilising site data and plant specifications provided by the technology provider plant isometrics and site layout diagrams were generated.
