Strebel have a long and rich history as a leading European boiler manufacturer. Boilers were first cast in Strebel foundries across Germany during the late 1800s and the now Austrian-owned group of companies continue to supply both domestic and commercial boilers to this day.
One focus area for Strebel is sustainable, renewable heating solutions. With increased awareness of environmental issues and pressure on businesses to become more environmentally friendly, in the last few years we have seen growing demand for the use of biomass fuels and renewable energy products across Europe.
As manufacturers of solid fuel – or biomass burning boilers for over 40 years (e.g logs, wood pellet, wood chip etc.), Strebel have built a reputation as a market leading supplier for the domestic and commercial sectors.
The Government has obligations in respect of renewables and therefore grants are now available for Domestic and Commercial sectors. A biomass boiler has therefore become an even more compelling proposition.
The Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC) and Ofgem have launched both the Domestic and Non-Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) with great success. There has never been a better time to reap the return on investment (ROI) when switching from a fossil fuel boiler to a clean burning, efficient biomass boiler.
For domestic homeowners the RHI will pay you up to 12p/kW for a period of 7 years. The Non-Domestic has been set in tiers but the RHI payments last for 20 years to the applicant.
Environmentally friendly, Saving on annual fuel bills and receiving the RHI
Sounds too good to be true? Well, as mentioned; switching away from fossil fuels (Gas & Oil) and using carbon neutral Biomass fuel to provide heat or hot water are a key part of the government’s strategy to reduce carbon emissions.
Whats more, Strebel Biomass Boilers are tested in line with Europe’s most stringent legislation. For example; all Strebel biomass boilers below 45kW hold The internationally recognised MCS Product Approval. The Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) is a quality assurance scheme, supported throughout Europe and in the UK, by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC). MCS certifies microgeneration technologies used to produce electricity and heat from renewable sources and ensures manufacturers such as ourselves meet with construction and eligibility requirements such as RHI.
Strebel supply a wide range of robust RHI compliant biomass boilers suitable for any premises.
