At Wey Valley Wood Fuel Energy Co-operative we are in the process of creating a series of community based renewable energy co-operatives which will use local, sustainably produced wood fuel to heat building complexes such as schools, sports centres and residential care homes whilst offering a fair return to investors.
The co-operatives will fund the replacement of fossil fuelled boilers with a sustainable wood fuel alternative. The energy produced will be sold to the heat user at a lower cost than the equivalent price of oil or LPG. Creating a market for locally produced wood chip will help to bring neglected woodlands back into sustainable production which in turn will help reduce carbon emissions and improve biodiversity.
We are now looking for potential heat projects (particularly those off the gas grid) particularly in West Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire to participate in our co-operative.
