HSL can undertake concept evaluations, while we also provide an energy advisory service to clients across the UK and worldwide. HSL has wide-reaching experience working across all manner of growing applications, so save money from the outset and contact HSL’s Victor Lambert or Craig Took to discuss your upcoming energy plans.

Biomass: worth investing?

Energy costs are the main talking point across the world of horticulture today - and

for good reason. Costs are spiralling, and roughly 30% of the UK’s renewable energy

target (for 2020) is expected to come from renewable heat. Working alongside

energy consultant Roger Saint HSL can advise on any form of heating, including biomass heating installations.


Although biomass systems need more space and a greater starting investment

than the equivalent fossil fuel installations, fuel cost savings can be high and

repay relatively quickly - especially if replacing an oil-based system.
