Wood is a significant renewable energy source – Wood supplies the planet with more energy than solar energy, hydroelectric or wind power, accounting for approximately 45 percent of current global renewable energy source (27 percent of total primary energy supply in Africa, 13 percent in Latin America and the Caribbean and 5% in Asia and Oceania).

Wood energy mitigates climate change and growth – Globally, forests hold an energy content approximately ten times that of earth s energy consumption. They thus have significant potential to meet energy demand. Forests provide clean water, air, and energy. Sustainably managed forests can provide renewable and carbon-neutral energy for a future.

Forests for energy, now and in a global economy that is green – Greater investment in technological innovation and sustainably managed forests is the key to forests that are increasing function as a source of energy. In this way, we invest in our sustainable future, in fulfilling Sustainable Development Goals and in developing a green economy.
