I had actually been looking into this for several years – 3 or 4 years but the more research I did the more confused, I became so seven months ago I brought in Kevin Lindegaard of Crops for Energy to help me make the decision which made it all very clear because we looked at the pros and cons of every option and eventually we came up with the one which sounded the best.

Many thanks for the excellent course on willow. We gained a lot of knowledge from it and were very impressed with the effort you put into the preparation of the materials and the way that you presented the course
John FinnanResearcher, Teagasc Crops Research Centre.
It was fascinating to hear about the journey you’ve been on with the SFR – an effort of willpower and perseverance that is a testament to the dedication Crops for Energy and FEC-Energy have shown to the industry for many years.
Neil Harrison, Director Re:Heat
Thank you both for a pleasant and informative day, which was well organised and professionally presented. Good to see it done so well, great location too.
Today I got around to reading all your reports and trying both the woodfuel production and utilisation templates. I must say that they are brilliant. The instructions are concise and logical and all the input fields worked for me and generated sensible outputs. Many thanks for your high quality work.

Both this and the draft report are excellent bits of work and exactly what I was hoping for. This second summary on issues with fuel is very useful and thought provoking

Thank you for sending your position paper. This is exactly what we need as a support for lobbying purposes – concrete examples with concrete figures.

I’ve finally had confirmation that my boiler has been accredited for RHI. Many thanks for your work in making this happen. If this is what you have to deal with on a daily basis then you are a very patient man. Thanks again.
