Biomass Heating Systems in Churches
As green energy technology emerges and the cost of other forms of energy continually increases we are receiving an increasing number of enquiries from Churches for risk management guidance on this subject.
A biomass fuel boiler burns non-fossil fuels e.g. wood pellets, wood chip or logs to produce energy to heat water that is then distributed via a low pressure hot water system around the building.
For these heating installations we would expect controls to be in place to aid the management and mitigation of risks relating to these systems. There is some potential fire and liability risks associated with this form of heating that can impact both property and people. For full information please read our Biomass Heating guidance notes.
