The use of biomass fuel has increased during the first quarter of 2020, according to data released from the UK Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.

P.H Winterton is the country’s leading provider of biomass fuel pellets, we are also part of the government’s approved Biomass Energy Supplier List.

Here we are going to look at the increase in the use of renewable energy and explain a bit more about our grades of biomass wood pellets.

Renewable Energy Usage Increasing

Renewable energy accounted for 47% of electricity generation during the first quarter of 2020, which is an increase of 11.1% when compared to the same period during 2019.

Total renewable electricity capacity in the UK was measured at 47.7 gigawatts throughout the first quarter, which also increased by 5.2% compared to 2019.

Different Grades of Pellets Explained

P.H Winterton currently offers two different grades of biomass pellets.

P16 grade pellets have a moisture content that is under 25% whilst our P35 grade pellets are highly absorbent and can be used in a number of applications.

We are able to supply the wood chip produced in large quantities all year round, with the following benefits –

  • A naturally dry form of fuel
  • Recycled product as it is carbon neutral
  • The use of wood that would normally be wasted or sent to landfill
  • A cost-effective heating solution

All of our biomass fuel is processed using our custom designed and built plant that chips and screens the wood to two different sizes while extracting all fines less than 6mm from the fuel.
