Verona - Major Producers of Wood Energy
"ENERGY WOOD" IS A SUSTAINABLE FOREST MANAGEMENT
Ensure forest maintenance as a fundamental step to contrast the degradation of national forest heritage and to animate the rural development of the inner areas. Promote sustainable forest management and professional development of forestry businesses, protect the safety and health of the workers, enhance local supply chains and logistic platforms for wood fuels, support forest management tools and policies for the production of Biomasses. Valorize biomasses for energy purposes from "off-forest".
HIGH QUALITY AND CERTIFIED BIOFUEL
Promote the quality of wood fuels as a prerequisite for proper combustion, characterized by high efficiency and low emission factors. Encourage quality improvement processes through pellet certification, sustainability and traceability of firewood, wood chips, pellets and briquettes.
MODERN DOMESTIC TECHNOLOGIES
Replace old domestic equipments with new and modern heating systems. Introduce an "energy bill" for heat from renewable sources and quickly activate the reform of white certificates. In systems that encourage electricity generation, prefer small and medium-scale cogeneration that enhances thermal energy. Develop and disseminate district heating and promote energy production models at the service of local communities.
CLEAR AND APPLICABLE STANDARDS, RULES FOR EMISSION LIMITS ADAPTED TO TECHNOLOGICAL PROGRESS.
Provide certainty and simplify procedures, share and coordinate good practices in regulatory and authoritative steps. Clarify, by discriminating obsolete technologies from efficient and performing technologies. Upgrading national legislation for a progressive and achievable reduction in the emission limits for instruments and installations, adapting it to technological progress and the best regulatory experience at European level.
ADVANTAGES AND OPPORTUNITIES AS A BASIS OF A CORRECT COMMUNICATION.
Introduce a multiannual information plan to communicate good practices to the public and the consumers, with reliable, shared market and technology data. Brochure
