The municipality of Yzeron strives to promote renewable energy in the region. The idea of a woodchip boiler was an ideal choice as half of the town is forested, significantly lowering the energy cost for the users compared to any other fossil fuel. That return could be maximized with an efficient distribution system. It needed become operational by winter for 55 students in the village and a home for mentally handicapped.
A total network out of 13 units was built. The wood boiler now supplies the new public school and the institution for the handicapped. The network could be implemented swiftly, safely and sustainably, securing affordable heat for the Yzeron community, for generations to come.
