Renewable biomass heat drives significant carbon reduction

AMP has supported the development and operation of a sustainable on-site renewable energy solution at Champneys Forest Mere.

The Vision

Sustainability is a top priority for wellness retreat Champneys. The health club wanted to make the switch from oil to a low carbon heat solution in 2015 to support the significant heat needs of its Forest Mere resort.

The Solution

AMP developed a low carbon biomass heat installation for Champneys Forest Mere to provide a sustainable supply of heat and hot water to the resort.

AMP take care of everything associated with the biomass heating system including fuel supply and service and maintenance. An energy supply agreement provides Champneys Forest Mere with long term energy security and protection from volatile fossil fuel prices.

“At Champneys we try to go as green as possible to reduce our CO2 emissions so to have a sustainable energy source like a biomass boiler is very beneficial to the business.
AMP deals with everything to do with the heat system – they supply the fuel and deal with any breakdowns, all we have to do it pay for the biomass energy we use on a per kWh basis.”
