With our longstanding reputation for doing business in the South West and a passion for innovation, we will help you discover the benefits of clean, green energy.
Ignis Heat & Power is Devon and Cornwall’s sole distributor for the UK’s first professionally-packaged small-scale biomass CHP unit – the ArborElectroGen®.
You won’t find our unique combined heat and power (CHP) solutions anywhere else in the South West. We draw on our own heritage as a team passionate about bringing the latest green energy solutions to the region’s business market.
We’re knowledgeable, business-focused and excited to help you get the most out of our partner, Arbor and are their sole distributor in Devon and Cornwall.
Any off-grid business which needs both heat and electricity can look to Ignis knowing there is nothing else on the market that will provide both, and earn you money at the same time.
We offer a start to finish service. We will assess your site’s suitability, install the system (working alongside other trades if needed) and guide you through what you need to do to receive the financial benefits.
Our family firm, Wendron Stoves, has traded for 30 years and our passion for innovation meant we were one of the first UK companies to venture in biomass.
Rely on us to make the energy equation simple for your enterprise.

Combined Heat and Power (CHP) generates all the heat and electricity you need by transforming woody biomass into a gas. Eligible for two Government incentives, on the highest tariffs available, CHP offers better returns than heat-only biomass technologies. Find out more about CHP here.
CHP gives better returns than heat-only biomass technologies. Your business will not only receive payments through the Biogas Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) for the heat that you use but also from the Renewable Obligation Certificates (ROCs) for the power you generate. You will also get paid for exporting surplus electricity back to the grid. Find out more about the finance benefits here.
Unlike traditional biomass, CHP can provide your farm or business with all the heat and power it needs. It also gives better returns than heat-only biomass technologies. We know that it is becoming increasingly difficult to get planning permissions for solar PV and wind turbines, so CHP is fast becoming the best energy investment. Learn more about CHP here.
The ArborElectroGen runs on dry (15% MC – dry basis) wood chips. These are fed into a system of chain conveyors and augers and gasified with limited air to retain a unique level of high energy in the gas.
