Upcoming webinar: Advancing wood pellet heating systems in Canada

May 2, 2023
By Canadian Biomass staff

In Canada, around 80 per cent of home heating energy is from fossil fuels such as natural gas and heating oil, or from fossil-derived electricity. In much of the country, Canadians could lower home heating costs and reduce GHG emissions by using wood pellet heating systems. Modern pellet heating systems are highly automated and convenient.

In fact, in many European countries, wood pellets have become a mainstream source of home and commercial heating. In the state of Upper Austria for example, 42 per cent of homes rely on wood pellets for heat.

Join moderator Karen Brandt and presenter Gordon Murray from the Wood Pellet Association of Canada for a free webinar on May 8 at 1 p.m. ET that will cover wood pellet stoves, furnaces, boilers and district energy systems.

Murray will address fuel procurement, storage, boiler operation, factors for efficient combustion, particulate emissions, ash handling and building heat distribution. We will also discuss the climate benefits of wood pellet heating systems and considerations in developing a biomass heating project.
