Biomass Fuels: local energy, local jobs, and community resilience / Nancy Fresco, F. Stuart Chapin, III.

Title: Biomass Fuels: local energy, local jobs, and community resilience / Nancy Fresco, F. Stuart Chapin, III.
Author(s): Fresco, Nancy.
Chapin, F. Stuart,
Date: 2009.
In: Agroborealis. (2009.), Vol. 40(1) (2009)
Abstract: Reports study to assess feasibility of switching power generation from fossil fuels to wood energy in 33 rural communities in forested regions of interior Alaska. Finds that installation costs of biomass systems would be recouped within 12 years for at least 32 communities in region. All but largest remote villages could meet all electrical demand and some heating needs with sustainable harvest of biomass within 8 km of settlement.
