The Publicly Available Specification (PAS) for biomass boilers will help to reduce information barriers around the uptake of efficient, low-emission alternatives to coal boilers.

Based on international standards and global best practice, this PAS will describe energy efficiency and safety considerations for procuring biomass boilers and appropriate fuel, including a checklist for purchasers. It will also provide detailed technical content for engineers and consultants looking to assist with procurement or supply, including a technical specification for energy efficient biomass boilers.

A draft of the PAS for public comment is available.
