12 – 15 September 2016, Linz/Austria
The market transformation towards modern, high-efficiency biomass heating presents enormous opportunities for local economic development, the reduction of energy costs and climate and environment protection. The International Training Seminar focuses on small- to mid-scale projects fuelled by wood pellets and wood chips covering solutions for homes, smaller commercial/ public buildings and district heating grids (up to a few hundred kilowatt).
