Biomass Thermal Energy Resource Materials
All resources below are free and publicly accessible. These tools are put forth to encourage the sustainable use of biomass for heat, an energy use that accounts for over 30% of U.S. consumption.
Many of these resources have been developed through the support of a grant from the USDA Forest Service’s Wood Education and Resource Center (WERC).* Other resources, reports, videos, and presentations have been made available from cooperating associations, universities, foundations, and institutes.
The following matrix includes the main materials BTEC has produced with the support of the Forest Service.
