Andrew Haden: Biomass and Heat
From "Heating Cascadia," by my former Ecotrust colleage Andrew Haden, in Sustainable Industries Magazine:
The conversation about sustainable energy is really three related conversations about transport, electricity and heat. Energy sources to effectively satisfy each of these needs vary by region. In the Pacific Northwest, the abundant and long-lived forests offer a clear choice for heat energy: biomass.
I've written before about matching energy quality to service, in this article on "Renewable Heat in the UK."
