SAC Consulting is seeking UK partners to participate in a pilot woodfuel production training programme.

The UK consultancy is leading a project to develop a new training programme, which aims to boost woodfuel production across Europe.

The WETNet project is being run in conjunction with training providers Rural Development Initiatives, and partners in France, Estonia, Turkey, Finland and Austria.

The training programme has been developed by looking at existing woodfuel training standards in all of the partner countries, and identifying the key

skills required to produce quality woodchip or firewood from forest and wood energy plans.

Two pilot courses have already been held in France and Austria, and a third is set to be held in the UK this spring.
