Technical Note SB35: Wood Energy Advisor Registration Scheme

The Wood Energy Advisor Registration Scheme (WEARS) is available to New Zealand and Australian consultants and advisers who have demonstrated that they have a level of knowledge and experience appropriate for undertaking feasibility studies and assisting potential wood fuelled heat plant owners to scope and install heat plant. Having demonstrated that they meet the criteria they can be acknowledged by becoming Registered Wood Energy Advisers.

Registration is personal as clients want to know that the individuals giving advice have the appropriate knowledge and experience to do so.

The scheme is aimed at ensuring the delivery of high-quality advice time and time again. The Scheme presents a win-win for clients and Registered Advisors - registration will provide assurance to clients, and advisors can show an external assessment of their experience with wood energy projects.
