Supporting renewable wood energy as a sustainable, low-carbon power source.
More than 100 university scientists emphasize: "The carbon benefits of sustainable forest biomass are well established.”
Renewable wood energy is sustainably-sourced from working forests throughout the Southeast US. The US forest products industry supports forest health and growth, and reduces risks of deforestation.
Wood energy is a renewable replacement for fossil fuels, providing low-carbon, on-demand energy to produce power and heat. Wood energy can reduce carbon emissions up to 90% when compared to coal.
Wood energy provides grid stability and back-up power, making it the perfect complement to other renewables like solar and wind. Wood energy is a critical component of any comprehensive renewables strategy.
