Bioproducts are the highest value-added uses. 2020 This sets up a “Carbon Cycle” where CO2 is continually being released, and then re-absorbed, then released, and so on… Wood energy is considered Low-Carbon or Carbon-Neutral because of this carbon cycle. Wood supports the delivery of onshore and offshore renewable projects around the world. 2007). When fossil fuel (oil, propane…) is burned, however, it also gives off CO2, but without any means of re-absorbing it later. Renewable resources can be used up and then replaced When wood is burned, it gives off Carbon Dioxide (CO2). Now may be a good time for us to re-consider our priorities, and not only think long-term and renewable, but also think local, clean and affordable. Hydropower was used for irrigation, watermills, textile machines, sawmills, and to power various other machines. Wood fuel is renewable. Solar Market Insight™ is a collaboration between the Solar Energy Industries Association® (SEIA®) and Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables that brings high-quality, solar-specific analysis and forecasts to industry professionals in the form of quarterly and annual reports. I believe we are missing a really huge opportunity. What is Woody Biomass? So, the renewable nature of wood depends on how the trees are replanted. Wood is strategically located throughout Latin America and the Caribbean in a variety of sectors including oil and gas, refining, chemicals, water, mining, energy, industrial plants and facilities and communications. The projects will require the support of more than 400 people and will take up to 12 months to deliver. Tidal, wave, ocean currents and wind are all the result of solar energy. The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change—the gold standard for climate science research—continues to embrace renewable wood energy as critical in all strategies to mitigate climate change. Foster CD, Gan J, Mayfield C. 2007b. Biomass may be burned to produce heat and steam, bio-gas can be collected as it decomposes, it can be fermented into ethanol, converted to biodiesel,or it may be converted in a number of other ways.

Thanks to the hard work of university scientists and the United Nations IPCC, the case for bioenergy has been made even stronger in 2019. Wood, the global engineering and consulting company, has secured a number of engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) onshore wind contracts in the United States worth a combined $100m.
