“Residential Heating with Wood Pellet Technology… a real life experience”

Introduction by: Eric Young, CIF-NL

Presentation by

Bill Alexander, Manager NL Forestry

Training Association


Given the recent increase in world oil prices and focus on renewable forms of energy many people are beginning to embrace the technology associated with heating homes with wood pellets. Bill has been a constant advocate of sustainable forest management and recognizes the opportunities associated with moving from a reliance on fossil fuels to a greener, renewable form of energy. In 2009, Bill made the commitment to purchase and install a hot water boiler system feed with locally produced wood pellets. He shall relate his experiences in terms of system logistics and economics as well as lead a discussion on the possibility of industrial conversions.

“Please bring along your lunch (coffee & sweets will be provided) and join the forest community in an interesting discussion on the use of wood pellet technology for residential heating”

See you there!
