Renewables for Commercial Buildings

With the current unpredictability of the gas and electricity prices there’s never been a better time to make the jump into investment in a renewable energy system for your commercial organisation.

Unlike with traditional fossil fuels - where the price can fluctuate quickly, making financial forecasting almost impossible - the price of biomass fuels, such as wood chips and pellets,  are much more stable and can provide exactly the same level of heating.

The fuel for solar PV is, of course, completely free.


PV for commercial buildings

Commercial buildings are perfect for Solar PV as all or most of the electricity generated can be utilised on-site gives the maximum possible electricity cost savings.

For low-risk electricity generation, quick financial paybacks (typically 3 to 5yrs payback)  and very long product warranties, the ideal solution is solar PV (photovoltaic). Generating your own electricity is a fantastic way of lowering electricity bills, reducing your carbon footprint and also promoting a more positive message for the surrounding environment. 

The PV panels are efficient enough to be able to produce almost 200W/m2, and unlike other on site generating plant there will be no space impact on the building itself.

Being able to introduce cost effective, environmentally friendly and sustainable heat and power solutions is at the forefront of what Myriad do.


Biomass Boilers For Commercial Properties

With solutions available from 100-10,000kW, Myriad has been designing, installing, and servicing Biomass boilers for almost two decades creating a long-term relationship with our preferred boiler manufacturers Herz and Binder.

Because biomass fuels used within these boilers are regarded as carbon neutral (excluding any fuel transportation) it’s a fantastic way to help combat climate change and minimise carbon financial penalties such as the upcoming UK carbon tax/trading scheme.

If you want to lower your energy bills, reduce your carbon footprint, earn a tax-free income, and present your business in a more positive light, then biomass heating is exactly what you need.

Biomass Boilers Vs Heat Pumps for heating

  • Water temperature: Heat pumps can provide heating water very efficiently but the temperatures tend to be lower than that acheivable from Biomass boilers. There are developments in heat pump technology to increase the temperatures but if temperatures above 70degC are needed then a Biomass boiler is really the only cost effective solution.
  • OPEX: Fuel Costs: The fuel costs for a wood chip biomass boiler are similar to the fuel costs for a gas boiler and a heat pump at between 3-4p/kWh. Wood pellet boilers are about 20% more expensive to run. 
  • OPEX: Service Costs: The ongoing servicing costs for a biomass boiler are more than those for a heat pump. These higher costs are usually far outweighed by the lower Capital cost of the biomass boiler system
  • CAPEX: A biomass boiler installation is approximately £500-750/kW installed, whereas a heat pump can bet between 700-£1,200/k
  • Low Emissions: The local emissions from a heat pump are effectively zero (as they are driven from electricity) although the total emissions are related to the grid emissions. The Myriad range of Biomass boilers do burn their wood pellets/chips cleanly and efficiently, which keeps the systems near to carbon neutral and produces very low emissions.
