Register for the webinar, “The Future of Residential Wood & Pellet Heat in America,” on Tuesday, July 19 at 2PM ET, and learn how federal and state governments can prepare for an increased use of wood heat and hear from experts as they identify the barriers to rapid growth of the industry. This event is co-hosted by the Alliance for Green Heat and the Biomass Thermal Energy Council.
Ten percent of homes use wood or pellet heat, and one study estimated that by heating with wood American households saved $3 billion a year that would have gone to fossil fuels. This far surpasses residential savings from all other renewable energies combined. In many European countries, wood heat doubled between 2000 and 2010 and projections call for a doubling again. Conditions on both continents are creating more demand for wood heat and as fossil fuel prices rise, savings for consumers will be even greater.
