WOOD FUEL – KEEPING THE CUSTOMER WARM 6 TH March 2010
Biomass is organic matter of recent origin Biomass is a carbon neutral energy source used to generate heat Biomass – Wood Fuel is most effective when sourced and delivered within 25 miles Sustainable timber is never removed faster than it is grown BIOMASS – Wood Fuel
CHIP - Medium to large heat energy users (100kW – 5MW) PELLET – Small to medium heat energy users (20kW – 500kW) Public and private sector buildings Schools, hospitals, airports Industrial and commercial sites Property developments Land Estates MARKETS
Obligations / Commitments Lower cost of heat energy Fuel security CO 2 reduction Rural economy Bio-diversity WHY SHOULD WE?
Government Targets – 15% by 2020 RHI – April 2011 CRC Planning Obligations Energy Security Woodland Management DRIVERS
