Environmental benefits of wood energy
Wood is a renewable resource and, therefore, a sustainable form of energy
Wood is carbon neutral, so it doesn’t contribute to the greenhouse effect
The use of wood as energy reduces potential waste and pollution
Unlike most electricity and fossil fuels, wood is a clean, efficient and renewable source of energy which has little or no negative impact on the environment.
Although wood releases carbon when it is burned, this is off-set by the carbon which is absorbed when a tree is grown.
When managed responsibly, forests are renewable and sustainable. Therefore, wood is a renewable resource and a sustainable form of energy. This is a benefit when compared to other forms of fuel (like fossil fuels) which are non-renewable and will eventually run out if they continue to be used at the current rate.
Wood energy is a cheaper long-run option. Wood Energy provides a safe, clean, reliable and economical alternative
Businesses and organisations are increasingly using wood for industrial processes, in horticulture such as heating greenhouses, and for heating and cooling commercial buildings and schools. Wood is now the fourth largest energy source after oil, coal and gas. Part of its popularity in recent years is due to the fact that wood can be grown and used sustainably.
Wood energy is also carbon neutral as the carbon released by burning wood is equal to the carbon absorbed by trees during growth.
