CWP Ltd was the UK partner in BioMaxEff, a project funded under the European Commission’s FP7 programme. The BioMaxEff consortium made a successful bid to the FP7 2010 call for projects to develop “a new generation of biomass boilers and stoves in the range up to 100kWth”. The project involved the development and demonstration of a new generation of pellet boilers designed to have higher efficiencies and lower emissions than the current state of art. The boilers were developed in Austria and underwent field and lab testing across Europe, taking into account varying regional fuel and heat demand scenarios. CWP’s input on this project focussed primarily on providing UK policy and market context for the project, developing content for the project website and on disseminating the project results to UK stakeholders. CWP were able to provide market intelligence and data on the UK biomass boiler, biomass fuel and housing markets. This data included an analysis of the legislative and policy context, market shifts and political developments pertinent to the UK biomass heating industry. The project ran from 2011 to 2014 and involved 12 partners from 8 EU member states.
