Heating with Biomass: A Feasibility Study of Wisconsin Schools Heated with Wood
The Fuels for Schools program grew out of the recognition that using hazardous fuels for heating public facilities like schools was a win–win situation for local communities.
A look at woodchip harvesting, delivery, and usage in a wood energy system at Mt. Mansfield Union High School in Jericho, Vermont to determine the opportunities and constraints around applying the Community Wood Energy model of sustainable production, efficient use, local sourcing, and fair access (SELF) to a typical wood energy system.
The college broke ground in April 2002 for the construction of a new wood biomass heating system that came on line for the 2002-03 heating season, replacing the current all electric system.
