Wood conf

Opportunities for growth and funding for the wood fuel industry will be under the spotlight at this year’s National Wood Fuel Conference on 15 October.

Organised by Surrey Hills Enterprises in association with Grown in Britain and the CLA, the one-day conference will provide a comprehensive overview of the industry, ideal for those looking to generate income from wood, understand more about growth opportunities through renewable energy or sustain a business in the wood fuel market.

Now in its sixth year, the National Wood Fuel Conference is sponsored by LC Energy, Surrey County Council and the Forestry Commission, and will take place at Epsom Downs Racecourse.

The conference will be chaired by Dougal Driver, Chairman of Grown in Britain, and coincides with Grown in Britain Week, a national celebration of woods and the values and products that they contribute.

Speakers include Chris Miles, Ian Tubby and Robin Edwards, who will be looking at sustainability, opportunities for landowners and the potential for growth in the education and care sectors.

The conference programme, which runs from 8.00am – 4.30pm, features round table sessions as well as speaker presentations. Delegates will also be able to benefit from an on-site exhibition featuring a range of suppliers to the wood fuel industry.

The cost is £115 for the day, including lunch, with an early-bird price of £95 available for bookings placed before the 31 August.
