Ickworth's biomass boiler, one of our renewable energy projects

Biomass is the use of biological materials – for example plants – for fuel. It’s nothing new to burn wood for heating, but technology today makes this far more efficient for your home.

We look to use wood grown on our own estates for heating, so we can use less oil. The part of the tree that can’t be turned into furniture can be used for fuel – either as logs for smaller systems or chips for large systems.
