Biomass experts win renewable energy award

Poultry biomass specialist Rural Energy has won Installer of the Year at the British Renewable Energy Awards, which it hopes will boost business for renewable energy.

The company was nominated for the award after installing biomass facilities for Turkey processor Bernard Matthews, to help it reduce its carbon footprint.

Rural Energy’s managing director Paul Clark said: “It is fantastic that the work of Rural Energy has been recognised by the renewable energy sector.

“This award is a great testament to the hard work, dedication and expertise of our team and its superb record of delivery in the poultry industry.

“Rural Energy continues to go from strength to strength, as more and more organisations recognise the many benefits of modern biomass technology.

“Many farmers are recognising the importance of biomass technology as a highly effective way of reducing energy bills and cutting carbon emissions. The government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), and the financial benefits that this can bring, makes the biomass proposition even more attractive.”
