Duncan Renewables will be exhibiting at the Yorkshire Agricultural Machinery Show (YAMS) which will be held at the York Auction Centre, Wednesday 4th February 2015.
Now in its second year, the first YAMS had a huge impact on the farming calendar and attracted 100 trade exhibitors and thousands of farmers and visitors. This year’s YAMS is already set to be bigger with 145 confirmed exhibitors showcasing an array of all the latest machinery and equipment for agriculture, horticulture, ground care and forestry.
Our solar PV installation on the York Auction Centre roof is a prime example of how you could make the most of spare land or roof space with solar PV. Our solar team will be available throughout the show to discuss how solar could both save and make you money. Our biomass experts will also be on Stand MK1 discussing the benefits of biomass to the agriculture industry.
With free entry and parking, there are no excuses for not visiting! The Duncan Renewables’ team are looking forward to discussing renewables from 8am to 4.30pm on Stand MK1, do come and pay us a visit!

Duncan Renewables will be exhibiting at the LAMMA Show at the East of England Showground, Peterborough on Wednesday 21st and Thursday 22nd January.
LAMMA is the UK’s largest farm machinery, equipment and agricultural services show. It is free to attend and regularly attracts up to 40,000 farmers from around the country and overseas.
If you haven’t heard of LAMMA – it was established in 1982 by a small group of local agricultural equipment manufacturers from across Lincolnshire with the first event attracting 50 exhibitors and 2,500 visiting farmers, contractors and agricultural engineers attended. By 2012, the Show had grown to nearly 800 exhibitors, with in excess of 40,000 attendees; LAMMA had become the largest UK agricultural equipment show and was increasingly becoming an international event.
Do come and see us as it’s an easy to attend event for farmers to see the latest agricultural machinery, equipment and services from around the world. Our Renewables Team will be on hand to discuss a range of technologies including biomass, biomass fuel, solar PV, solar thermal as well as the latest on the relevant Renewable Heat Incentive and Feed-in Tariff schemes.
It’s been a busy month since our last update: the latest tariff rate reductions have been announced for domestic and non-domestic RHI; DECC has launched a new PV consultation for commercial roof mounted systems. Meanwhile we’re busy ensuring all our biomass customers will have their boilers commissioned before the 31st December deadline plus there’s some company news too. All in all a bumper edition!
_________________________________________________ Black Friday RHI Cuts – 28th November
Last week DECC announced their latest round of tariff reductions for the Domestic and Non-Domestic RHI schemes.
Domestic biomass RHI received a 10% reduction which will be applied in the New Year. The forecast expenditure for biomass amounted to £5.8m at 31st October 2014 which is in excess of this quarter’s expenditure threshold for biomass of £4.2m.

Whilst shoppers are frantically looking for the best Black Friday bargains, DECC have today announced cuts of their own. DECC have announced tariff reductions in both the commercial and domestic RHI schemes, effective the 1st January 2015.
A 10% degression in the RHI tariff for Domestic Biomass Plants will be applied in the New Year; this is due to the forecast expenditure for biomass amounting to £5.8m as of 31st October 2014. This is in excess of this quarter’s expenditure threshold for biomass of £4.2m. The revised tariff for RHI installations will be as follows:
Rate from 1st January 2015
Small Domestic Biomass
Regarding the Commercial RHI scheme, the tariff for Small Commercial Biomass will be reduced by 10%. Despite an anticipated growth of £8.7m in the quarter ending 31st October, Small Commercial Biomass grew by £11.2m. With growth exceeding the 50% rate necessary for a further 5% degression on the previous in October, the tariff has been reduced by 10%. Since the rate of growth amounted to 129% though, the Small Commercial Biomass category did not exceed the 150% growth rate, consequently avoiding a 20% degression. ...
Following on from our sell out success at Renewable Energy Exchange (REX) Yorkshire in Harrogate earlier this month, we’re attending the North East next event at Newcastle Racecourse, Gosforth Park on Thursday 20th November.
Just to recap, REX events are ideal for landowners, farmers, businesses, schools and all others looking to invest in renewable projects and take advantage of the Feed-in Tariff and the Renewable Heat Incentive schemes.
This networking event creates a market-place that enables those interested in investing in renewable technologies to have a series of pre-arranged appointments with potential suppliers and attend a programme of roundtable discussion groups.
Buyers can then review their options and make well-informed decisions as to the best technology to use and the right installer to work with.
On the run-up to the event, buyers go online and select the individuals whom they would like to have an appointment with.
All meetings are then pre-arranged and scheduled on the basis of mutual interest. This service is now LIVE!
Phil Blair will be hosting a roundtable discussion on Solar PV:
