Wood heating - heat with wood

There were wooden stoves of all kind in big choice to see on the Austrobau. Nevertheless, we do not report about that because of a principle technological decision.



  Use no fuel for heating instead of mobility


Our principle decision is: use no fuel for mobility for heating!

An average single family house from 1980 needs 2000 litres a year. A modern minvan can drive with this 30.000 kms

At last at long distances, there is no alternative to liquid fuel. Burning liquid fuel can be avoided by modern technic in houses, so it can be seen as a pointless squandering.

  Liquid fuel from wood


In the foreseeable future firewood will be processed to liquid fuel. Then we will need with exploding oil prices all available wood to win fuel from it.

  Photovoltaic and heat pump for heating


Instead of the wood heating we promote to equip roofs completely with photovoltaic, to provide houses with extreme heat insulation and to heat with the heat pump.

Energy from wood Energy from wood
Where is energy from wood usefull in a long term? Where is the use of wood for energy maybe only a short time fashion hype without sustainability?
