Wood pellets shortage - the limits of heating by wood
We warned lassed year several times before, the wood heating, but we have to admit, the short time where the shortage of pellets occured was very surprising.
Leran to read an energy balance sheet
An accountant is able to predict the future of an enterprise by numbes mysterious for the amateur. A mystery for the amateur, very amateur for the specialist. Same with an energy balance sheet. Who can read this material will quickly recognize, that heating by wood has no future. Biomass is to few to be burned. Use solar energy to heat houses instead of burning biomass.
Principle descision against wood ovens
Wood is better used in a wood gasification to make out of it electric power and heat, or gas or Diesel. That is a optimal utilization of wood. Who is able to create from 1kg wood 1,15 kWh electric power and 2,55 kWh heat can pay more for the wood. Simple burning in an oven is a waste of resources.
We wrote this already 2005, the shortage of pellets shows we have been right.
