Description

If you’re a local businessperson, an entrepreneur, a tribal partner, a community organizer; a decision-maker for a school district, college, or hospital; a government leader; a project developer; an industry leader; or an equipment manufacturer, the Alaska Community Handbook will be helpful to you. This handbook is the first stop for individuals, businesses, and communities considering biomass heating in Alaska. It can help you ask the right questions to quickly narrow your range of options and take unrealistic ones off the table.

The Alaska Biomass Handbook was developed as part of two ongoing initiatives in the Alaska Region; the USDA Southeast Alaska Economic Diversification Strategy, and the Tongass transition framework. It was funded primarily by the Forest Service’s Pacific Northwest Research Station with support from the Alaska Region as well as the University of Minnesota.
