  • Energy Sustainable roofs can both save and produce energy. The potential energy savings available through the use of properly insulated roofing systems could exceed trillion Btu each year, while the solar energy potential of our nation’s roof surfaces could exceed the power of over one dozen Grand Coulee dams. The member OES, including the U.S., China, most E.U. nations, and India, believes ocean power has the potential to become the Holy Grail of renewable energy due to its sheer potential.

Sustainable management of Miombo woodlands – Food security, nutrition and wood energy The Miombo woodland is a vast African dryland forest ecosystem covering close to million km2 across southern Africa.

The woodlands are characterized by the dominance of Brachystegia species, either alone or in association with Julbernardia and Isoberlinia species.

Goal #7 (energy access): Wood energy solutions could help reduce energy poverty and increase the use of renewable energy. Goal #8 (economic growth and employment): Modernized wood energy value chains could have high economic potential, generate substantial tax revenues, and create formal jobs, which are especially important in rural areas with limited economic.

Summary of Results and Discussion. Current role and relative importance of wood energy. Having always been one use of wood raw material, energy did not play a major economic role in the last decades; material use of wood (for paper and wood products) had been the dominating use in most countries of the UNECE recent years wood energy came back in the focus of society and.

Other benefits include contributions to rural and regional development, technology innovation and environmental research. Carbon stored within harvested wood products (HWPs) may be a tool to mitigate climate change, yet its global potential as a carbon sink is unknown and difficult to assess.
