about us

PBE installs and maintains biomass systems and supplies the wood pellet and wood chip fuel to run them. We also own and run our own biomass systems, generating heat for customers and ourselves. 

The company was set up in 2005 to focus on the emerging biomass industry. Initially, the idea was to work with farmers, who wanted to grow miscanthus – elephant grass – as a source of biomass fuel.  

In 2007, we branched out into boiler installations and maintenance, taking responsibility for the installation, servicing and fuelling of the first biomass system at Bluestone National Park Resort. This was wood chip fuel. 

However, we diversified into wood pellet distribution in autumn 2008 when another biomass company found itself unable to fulfil its supply contracts to schools and other public-sector organisations, which had recently installed biomass systems. 

Over the past 10 years, the business has expanded rapidly on all three fronts: installations and servicing, wood pellets and wood chip. Our installation arm focuses on commercial scale systems but, on the fuel side, we also deliver to domestic customers. 

We are one of the few firms, which can both install your boiler and supply you with fuel. This has allowed us to develop an in-depth understanding of how best to design biomass systems, including that often-overlooked aspect – the pellet store and the connecting pipework to the boiler. 

Our ethos is Making Biomass Work, meaning that we design efficient biomass systems and do our best to rectify faults in other systems we come across. We have some of the most experienced specialists in the UK biomass industry and we’re always happy to help.
