Firewood Production Project to Meet Local Energy Needs
Italy is the world's largest importer of firewood (ISPRA Report 97/2009), maining from eastern European countries. At the same time, the abandonment of the country's coppice woods is having a negative impact in environmental, landscape and socio-economic terms. In Budoia practically the only available wood on the market for private use is imported while the surrounding cuttable stands are no longer being tended. Forestry and woodcutting must be reinstated and a local supply chain for energy-producing firewood created.

The Emmen valley - The vision of a valley heated without oil
Timber and solar energy rather than oil, gas and electricity are to be the heating resources of the future in Switzer-land's Emmen valley. Although the Emmen valley region is densely forested, each year it still buys in some CHF 30 m's worth of oil, gas and electricity - while more than half the wood accruing each year simply rots away in the region's forests. It's a situation the "Oil of Emmental" project hopes to remedy.

Green energy in Austria
Things are looking good for green energy in Austria. In the region of Lower Austria, for example, 2004 saw the construction of more biomass heating plants, biogas digesters and wind power plants than ever before. Today about seven percent of the electricity generated in Lower Austria is a product of wind, biomass or biogas.

Biogas - Car fuel of the future?
The SwissFarmerPower Working Group recently presented a study entitled "Agricultural Biogas, the Fuel of Tomorrow" which shows that animal husbandry in the Swiss mountain canton of Lucerne produces enough biogas from faeces to supply 32,000 cars a year with fuel. Biogas fuel would also considerably improve air hygiene and help reduce CO2 emissions.
