Supporting renewable wood energy as a sustainable, low-carbon power source.
In the midst of the global coronavirus pandemic, US industrial wood pellet producers continue operations, ensuring no supply disruptions for global customers depending on their product for renewable wood heat and power production.
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.
