Woody biomass is quietly expanding as a viable, cost-effective energy alternative to fossil fuels in America.

Though this natural, renewable and locally produced resource will never supply all of our nation’s energy needs, when operated in concert with sustainable forest management, it can be an effective energy option in both rural and urban areas.

Energy-efficient commercial and industrial woody biomass boiler systems of various types and sizes are gradually building an excellent track record in schools, hospitals and municipal complexes across the Northeast, mid-Atlantic and Midwest states —including at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Chillicothe.

This past August, we took a look back at three recently installed biomass energy demonstration projects at facilities in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts to see whether the longer-term results lived up to their expectations.

What we found out was that, regardless of the location or facility type, woody biomass energy systems achieved excellent results over the long term. Representatives from all three facilities also said they would recommend their biomass plant solutions to other facilities with similar needs and resources.
