The Woodfuel Conference - For London and the South East

Friday 4th October 2013

Wotton House, Dorking, Surrey


‘Businesses are increasingly looking for ways to improve efficiency, reduce costs and demonstrate environmental responsibility to both shareholders and customers. While well established in continental Europe the use of locally sourced wood as a renewable fuel is only now starting to gather momentum in England. Iconic companies, including British Airports Authority, Waitrose and Centre Parcs, and enterprising local businesses are increasingly replacing expensive oil fired heating with modern woodfuelled systems. The conference will allow you to explore how your business could utilise this well established technology.’

The 4th Annual Wood Fuel Conference addressing crucial industry issues: 

  • The sustainability of the wood fuel 
  • The Grown in Britain Initiative 
  • The benefits and challenges of a local supply chain 
  • The arguments for and against using wood for fuel 

Meet industry stakeholders at Wotton House, ancestral home of John Evelyn, the industrialist, forester and author of "Sylva" in 1664

The conference is the focal point in the calendar for policymakers, producers and buyers.
