Wood Energy


Wood Energy is one of the UK’s leading wood-fuel heating businesses, providing over a third of the country’s total wood heat capacity and saving almost 12,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions a year through its boiler installations. Based in Devon, the company helped to set up the UK’s only accredited wood-fuel training course for the industry to help raise standards. It has also worked hard to ensure a reliable supply of fuel for the heating systems it installs, by supporting local wood-fuel supply businesses and pellet mills. Benefiting from the growing demand for wood-fuel – which is now cheaper than fossil fuels – the business is helping the UK meet its carbon reduction targets. Category Nonprofits & Activism
