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

Untitled-9  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.

- New Zealand Government, EECA

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.

- New Zealand Government, EECA


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.
 

Untitled-9 Wood energy is also carbon neutral as the carbon released by burning wood is equal to the carbon absorbed by trees during growth.

Wood energy is a form of bioenergy. Bioenergy is energy from the sun which is captured in organic material such as wood, crops or animal waste.
