Aldern House Biomass Boiler Case Study Microsite

The Peak District National Park Authority (PDNPA) is undertaking its biggest single carbon reduction project to date, a boiler replacement programme at Aldern House, its Head Quarters in Bakewell, Derbyshire.

This Website provides a case study of the project, we hope that the information, pictures, videos and blog will provide a starting point and inspiration to others considering similar projects.

The project spanned a two year period with a construction phase over almost 6 months. There were two key elements to our project, refitting the boiler room and replacing the boilers and the construction of a biomass pellet fuel store. Each element and how we approached them are detailed here and we hope to communicate the things that worked well and those that didn’t.

The video below gives an overview the Authority’s approach to the issue of climate change. Please use the menus above to find more detail about the project itself.
