Ignis Biomass (www.ignis-biomass.com) has raised £3.1m from Ludgate Environmental Fund for to build a biomass energy plant in Wick, Scotland. The plant will replace oil-fired heat production for the district heating network of the Wick Highland Council. Ignis claims that wood biomass can provide 10% of the UK's renewable energy requirement. The company aims to develop, own and operate small scale energy plants which match local needs - replicating the co-generation (or combined heat and power/CHP) approach widely used in Germany, Austria and Scandinavia.Typical customers are local aurorities or businesses which require heat (as hot water or steam) and electricity. Excess energy will be sold to the national grid.
