Biomass and Energy Wood

The use of wood for energy production on a large scale has recently emerged as a genuinely new and very welcome market.

The government intends to create a low-carbon economy and has identified the need to encourage the development of a wide range of renewable options including power plants fuelled by biomass. Initially the focus was on electricity generation but the Renewable Heat Incentive, which will be launched in the summer of 2011, is designed to lead to a significant increase in the level of renewable heat and woody biomass is a very efficient fuel from which heat can be produced.

Scottish Woodlands has been actively pursuing the production of energy wood as part of our timber harvesting operations since 2006 with the objective being to create an additional product and thereby increase the overall return to the woodland owner. The Company is now becoming established as a major supplier of wood fuel to the biomass energy industry.
