Bioheat® Fuel and the path to Net-Zero Emissions



We have been helping our customers reduce their carbon emissions and improve their energy efficiency by offering a comprehensive suite of sustainable services, including renewable generation, asset monetization, carbon accounting, and many more to help you contribute to a greener future.


Another way Energo has been aiding in the fight against carbon emissions is by delivering clean, renewable Bioheat® fuel to commercial businesses and buildings in New York City. Bioheat® fuel is a blend of biodiesel fuel rendered from organic materials such as soybean oil, used cooking oil, and other vegetable oils with ultra-low sulfur heating oil. This fuel will help reduce emissions, improve system efficiency, and extend the life span of heating equipment.


Benefits of Bioheat® Fuel Include:


  • Improved Community Health: Recent studies have shown that communities that switch to B100 (100% biodiesel) for home heating and transportation would prevent 340 premature deaths a year and reduce cancer risks by 45%.


  • No Equipment Upgrades: Using Bioheat® fuel doesn’t require any pricy upgrades to your current heating system. It also acts as a natural lubricant and can help extend the lifespan of your heating system.


  • Available Tax Credits: In New York State, heating fuel customers who use Bioheat® fuel blends beginning at B6 (6% biodiesel) and up to B20 can earn a 1 cent per gallon discount for each percentage of biodiesel in their fuel up to 20 cents per gallon under the Clean Heating Fuel Credit. Energo delivers Bioheat® fuel blends from B6 up to B20, so all of our fuel oil customers are eligible for a Clean Heating Fuel Credit at the end of the year!


The energy-efficient and sustainable choices we make today will undoubtedly affect the future of our world tomorrow. Let’s make sure we make the right decisions to improve our future for the better and using Bioheat® fuel is a clear answer.
