DescriptionUnderstanding the effect of expanding wood energy markets is important to all wood-dependent industries and to policymakers debating the implementation of public programs to support the expansion of wood energy generation. A key factor in determining the feasibility of wood energy projects (e.g. wood boiler or pellet plant) is the long-term (i.e. 20-30year) supply outlook for raw materials. Long-term supply of wood for energy, in turn, is directly affected by long-term demand from various markets using wood fuel for alternative demands (e.g. traditional wood industries).
