An exhibition at the Sage Gateshead will promote wood fuel as one way to help businesses pursue cheap energy and reduce their emissions.
Individuals from the Biomass Energy Centre and the Forestry Commission will be attending the Ignition09 exhibition on March 11th and 12th to offer advice on how wood fuel can benefit corporations.
With wood being in relative abundance across the UK, businesses have the opportunity to consider a switch to an energy form which is both cleaner and cheaper than conventional sources.
Angela Duignan, head of wood fuel implementation for Forestry Commission England, said: "This event plays a key role in overcoming barriers to create a flourishing industry and bring wood fuel one step closer to reaching its full potential."
Over the next decade, the Forestry Commission is looking to expand wood fuel use to the level where two million tonnes is used each year as a cheap energy source.
The government has thrown its support behind nuclear power as the best way to produce clean energy and safeguard the UK's energy future.
