Wood Heat Solutions : A Community Guide to Biomass Thermal Projects
MetadataShow full item record
This guide provides an introduction to woody biomass as a viable alternative to fossil fuels for generating heat and offers case study examples and sources for further information on developing a biomass heat project. It is specifically geared towards communities in the Pacific Northwest where biomass projects support social and ecological as well as economic goals. The case studies demonstrate how the ingredients of a successful biomass heat project can come together with a little initiative and some hard work. While describing some of the challenges, these examples also highlight the opportunities and benefits of increased savings, support for local wood products industries, reduced dependence on fossil fuels and more sustainable energy systems.
