A new trade group has been launched for wood heat power providers has been launched today called The Wood Heat Association, which has been set up by the Renewable Energy Association (REA).

There’s a fast-growing industry of more than 700 companies across the UK wood heat supply chain, according to the REA, supporting around 13,500 jobs.

It says this is aided by the Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) which offers subsidies for biomass – that’s burning natural matter to generate heat.

Interim Chairman for the WHA, Julian Morgan-Jones says “Wood heat is rapidly becoming one of the major players in UK renewables… An important first step is to raise awareness and standards across the wood heat supply chain: from boiler design, manufacture and installation to the safety, quality and sustainability of wood fuel.”
