“The Wood Fuel Conference has been growing rapidly over the past five years and reflects the significant interest and its importance as a flagship nationwide event for the wood and wood fuel industries,” said Mark Lebus of LC Energy. “The principal reason for our involvement from the start has been to make best use of the opportunity to build awareness of all aspects of the wood fuel sector for both users and suppliers. The annual event has been a tremendous success in bringing together the pre-eminent businesses across the industry in a forum of discussion, debate and networking.”

About this year’s National Wood Fuel Conference

Organised by Surrey Hills Enterprises, this year’s National Wood Fuel Conference took place on Friday 17th October and was attended by over 200 delegates who came together at Denbies Vineyard in Surrey for an over-subscribed event chaired by Grown in Britain’s Chief Executive, Dougal Driver.

Sponsored by LC Energy and Forestry Commission England, and in association with Grown in Britain and Country Land and Business Association (CLA), the event saw industry experts, including DECC, CIBSE and the Forestry Commission, presenting the solid case for wood fuel as the key to sustainable woodland management.

This national event marked the launch of the new CIBSE (Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers) Guidance Manual on Biomass Heating which will guide the industry towards a higher level of professional and technical competence and ensure that wood fuel system installations benefit from best practice.
