View the webinar from the Alliance for Green Heat and the Biomass Thermal Energy Council to explore how federal and state governments can prepare for an increased use of residential wood heat. While more and more households are turning to wood heat as an affordable alternative to fossil fuels, there are barriers to the growth of clean and efficient wood heart. Non-profit, industry and air quality experts will identify these barriers and outline methods for policy makers to overcome them.
