Registered wood energy advisors

Undertaking wood energy projects, such as feasibility studies or heat plant construction and commissioning, requires specialist knowledge and experience in all aspects of plant equipment, fuel, feedstock, operation, maintenance and safety.

Bioenergy Association-registered wood energy advisers have expertise in balancing fuel type and grade and equipment design and have demonstrated professional conduct, experience and knowledge. They must work within the Bioenergy Association’s Code of Conduct and undertake continuing professional development offered by the Association, including webinars, workshops and site visits.
