Coillte – Delivering Sustainable Energy Supply Solutions

coillte_logoCoillte provides long term, secure biomass fuel supply contracts to the industrial heat sector and can assist in the evaluation of the both technical and commercial viability of projects for large scale energy users.

Coillte play a key leadership role in delivering sustainable biomass energy solutions to Irish industry and actively works with its customers to reduce CO2 emissions. Many clients have a global ambition to become carbon neutral across the value chain from sourcing raw materials to manufacturing, product use and eventual product disposal. Carbon neutrality can be achieved, through first reducing the value chain carbon footprint followed by pursuing carbon-offsetting strategies to reduce the net emissions to zero. With a focus on energy efficiency, installing a biomass boiler enables large energy users to use local biomass to produce steam to serve the production facilities while reducing emissions and helping to maintain competitiveness.

Coillte operate several regional biomass supply hubs across the country that produce wood chip strictly in accordance with the quality specifications set out in I.S. CEN/TS 14961 : 2005. Coillte is committed to a strategy that matches local renewable energy requirements with local biomass supply and feed stock is sourced from both Coillte and private forestry plantations from the surrounding counties.

With the introduction of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), it is expected that demand for biomass for energy will grow across the industrial heat sector.

Coillte has been firmly at the forefront of the bio-energy sector in Ireland, providing strong leadership in the area of renewable heat. Coillte has established local biomass supply chains by identifying and addressing the key barriers to industrial scale users of biomass. By providing long term, secure supply contracts, where clients pay per GJ rather than per tonne, Coillte has enabled significant investment decisions by key industrial partners, stimulating local demand for forest products, both Coillte and private. Over the last 4 years these investments have displaced >8m litres of fuel oil, saving >26k tonnes of carbon emissions, created new employment and underpinned the competitiveness of these export focussed industries. Coillte’s thought leadership and supporting analysis has directly influenced the recent Government decision to introduce a Renewable Heat Incentive next year. This will further transform the sector, stimulating new investment, jobs and market growth.
