These are my links for August 25th through August 30th:

  • 500 Internal Server Error – 500 Internal Server Error
  • Is it worth it? Energy project viability – excellent post from Jamie clearly explains ROI and other ratios.
  • Footprint » Q & A on Ropemaker – Fascinating interview with Sarah Cary and others on Ropemaker: "The biomass boiler was driven primarily by the renewables requirement at planning stage in 2006. We also find that the climate for biomass in urban areas has changed, and that air quality issues are driving some local authorities to reconsider biomass. We have received a number of quotes for biomass pellet supply, and consider that we could have a reliable supply for the building if we desired. The price is variable, but it is currently more expensive than using the dual fuel boiler on gas. Given the low heating demands in city offices, the current cost of biomass, and the growing resistance on air quality grounds, we are finding that biomass generally does not currently make sense in urban offices. As Ropemaker Place was under fit-out construction last winter, we have not yet used the biomass. "
