Wshop180530: Transitioning coal to wood fuel in Otago
... the opportunities and challenges ...
The "Transitioning from coal to wood in Otago" Conference was held in Dunedin on 30 May 2018. The workshop provided an overview of the wood fuel supply market in the region and the opportunities emerging. Recent work for the Otago Mayoral Forum indicates that there is a potential for 70MWth of processing heat plant currently using coal which could be substituted by wood fuel. This would produce greenhouse gas emission reductions of 84 kt CO2-e which would be a big dent in the region’s overall emissions.
