This project is a collaborative effort of state, federal, and local government agencies, businesses, and non-profits to expand the use of clean, renewable wood energy, and simultaneously improve the health of our national forests.The team is developing wood energy projects that provide heat and power to schools, hospitals, commercial buildings, and industrial facilities by utilizing woody biomass residuals from forest restoration activities in Washington State.To advance this effort, the Washington SWET is working with partners to assist wood energy projects in various stages of development by providing technical, financial, and outreach assistance to facilities and community members.The team is also developing feasibility studies to determine which projects are the best candidate for conversion from fossil fuel heat and/or power to wood energy.
