4 Sponsored by: Key Stakeholders Workshop 9-10 March What is Woodheat Solutions? AIM: Inspire investment in wood-based heat generation from under managed woodlands in England, Croatia and Slovenia drawing on the experience gained in Finland and Austria. TIMEFRAME: 1 October 2008 to 31 st March 2011 Project Partners: Croation Forest Extension Service Slovenian Forestry Institute Technical Research Centre of Finland Styrian Chamber of Agriculture and Forestry

5 Sponsored by: Key Stakeholders Workshop 9-10 March Strategic WhS Objectives: To significantly increase investment in woodheat systems using biomass from undermanaged woods in less experienced member states: –15MW of new woodheat installed within 5 yrs (10MW UK, 2MW Slovenia, 3MW Croatia) –At least 4,500 ha of woodland in enhanced management in 5 years (4,500 ha UK av 5ha, 1,000 ha Slovenia av 3ha, 500ha Croatia av > 1 ha) –New policies/funding introduced to promote uptake of woodheat (10 significant new initiatives in 5 years: 5 UK, 3 Sovenia, 2 Croatia)

6 Sponsored by: Key Stakeholders Workshop 9-10 March Strategic WhS Objectives: Best practice from Austria and Finland embedded in MS training on woodheat: –50% of trainers in woodheat in Slovenia and UK and 75% in Croatia using WhS training materials within 12 months Secure pragmatic implementation of CEN standards using best practice from WhS: –75% of UK and 50% of Slovenian and Croatian Regions using WhS Roadmap within 12 months

7 Sponsored by: Key Stakeholders Workshop 9-10 March Strategic WhS Objectives: To stimulate new woodheat projects: –40 in UK –20 in Slovenia –10 in Croatia All cross linked to funding administrators and referenced to list of participants on project

8 Sponsored by: Key Stakeholders Workshop 9-10 March Project stages: 1.Project management 2.Engagement 3.Entrepreneurship – Finnish Study Tour 4.Promoting and applying standards – Austrian study tour and Roadmap 5.Technical training 6.Communications and Dissemination 7.Common Dissemination

9 Sponsored by: Key Stakeholders Workshop 9-10 March Trees and the Carbon Cycle Harvested wood: Locks up CO 2 in buildings, furniture etc Releases CO 2 to atmosphere when burnt Substitutes for fossil fuel use Helps mitigate climate change Growing trees: Absorb CO 2 from the atmosphere Mitigate climate change
