Posted By: jamesingramMeanwhile we could use other heat sources, that emit a good deal less carbon dioxide than the trees have absorbed, to provide for the same heat requirements.
Posted By: jamesingramThere is certainly not enough biomass available to both usefully sequester and burn.
Posted By: jamesingram – a biomass boiler then becomes a substitute for good design and energy efficiency. By specifying a biomass boiler, design teams feel they have met their carbon targets, and investing time and budget into efficient, truly low-energy design and construction seems superfluous.
Posted By: jamesingram· Once when the biomass is burnt, releasing twice as much carbon as burning gas for the same heat output
Posted By: jamesingram Again when the building leaks energy, because insufficient attention was paid to energy efficient building fabric and plant design – i.e., the biomass boiler "did it all".
Posted By: jamesingram And further, there is a risk that the timber price is pushed so high by the competition from a growing number of biomass burners,
Posted By: jamesingram I believe when you do this, it is clear that we need to go back to the simple principle of using less energy, in whatever form.'
