Wood burning heating systems in flats – district heating

On Radio 4 this lunchtime they just talked about some district heating system in Yorkshire that uses wood chip!
There's more info here about the Sheffield Road Flats in Barnsley - hearing system
One 320 kW and one 150 kW woodchip boiler supplying heat for a block of 166 flats in Barnsley.
It's certainly something that is of interest to me - we have a wood burner and I've read about CHP systems which can generate heat and electricity from burning fuel. Whilst the Barnsley flats only heats - it's certainly very interesting.
We certainly lag behind other countries - Denmark has 60% of all it's heating from district systems.
