Austria Model

April 22, 2011

HVGE just returned from co-hosting the HeatNE conference in Manchester, NH where we met many of the key players working to develop a clean biomass industry here in the US.

Christiane Egger (OEC) and Herbet Ortner (OkoFEN) reported the success Austria has had in developing a viable clean biomass industry. In Austria, pellet boilers are highly efficient, fully automated and filled by bulk delivery , so they present no added inconvenience to the consumer. Becoming leaders in the field has paid off with the creation of 4,000 jobs and $750 Million. 25% of pellet boilers purchased in the EU come from Austria.

In order to create a similar market here in the US we’ll need quality fuel supply, efficient combustion equipment and educated consumers. HVGE is dedicated to pushing this movement forward here in Mid-Hudson Valley of NY. Help us by becoming one of our producers or consumers, or just keeping in touch with our progress and spreading the word!
