Lakeside Lodge

Lakeside Lodge Golf Centre is saving 87% CO2 per year, compared to LPG, with a payback of 6 years

The Background
Family owned Lakeside Lodge Golf Centre was established in 1992 and has expanded to include four golf courses, accommodation, tenpin bowling, conference/meeting facilities, licensed bar/restaurant and health club. The centre had previously used LPG for heating and had an Abel Energy 40kW roof mounted solar array installed in 2012. This system is eligible for the Government’s Feed in Tariff (FIT), paid for each kWh of electricity generated.

Abel Energy returned to Lakeside in August 2015 to install a biomass system. Due to a lack of plant room space on site, the biomass was supplied as a containerised system. The 40ft container houses a Herz Firematic 201kW biomass boiler, 2 Froling 1500l buffer tanks and 24m3 internal fuel store. Fuel pellets are blown into the store and transferred to the boiler via a flexible screw auger. Herz boilers are convenient, long-lasting, economical and safe. Herz are an Austrian manufacturer and have an excellent track record for efficiency and quality within the biomass industry.
Heat produced by the biomass system is transferred via the existing district heat main to the Main Building, Leisure Centre and Bowling Alley, where it is integrated into the existing heat and hot water systems with hydraulic separation via heat exchangers.

Lakeside Lodge now also claims the Non-Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) which is guaranteed by Ofgem for 20 years. The quarterly income from the RHI, combined with the fuel savings of installing a biomass boiler offers Lakeside Lodge a payback of just 6 years and CO2 savings of 87% per year.

Mr David Hopkins (Owner) said:
“I still can’t believe how clean and maintenance free the boiler has been, we haven’t yet needed to clear any ash!
“It was great to deal with such a straightforward and personable company. There were no hidden extras or costs and the same person kept in contact throughout the process”.
