Wood To Energy
This project aims to increase community understanding and discussion about the possibility of using wood for energy in the South. Population growth in forested areas across the South could generate potential interest and a ready supply of woody biomass for energy. People often have a variety of questions about using wood for energy, many of which are answered in our Fact Sheets. It often helps to see how others are using wood; our Case Studies illustrate 14 examples of utilities, industries, and facilities that use wood for energy. A number of communities in the South have a reasonable potential to sustainably harvest enough wood to power a municipal building, hospital, industry, or several thousand homes.
