Some economics on wood as biofuel

I’ve come across some economics about using wood biomas as energy on a US forest products document. The document by the USDA’s Forest Products Laboratories pretty pro wood, but that said, the economics of using wood to generate energy seem to show that the cost of producing 1m British Thermal Units (BTU) of heat was about $2.50 in Wisconsin in 2003 compared with $24.90 for electricity.

    I posted your comment on the blog of the Madison (WI) Peak Oil Group: http://madisonpeakoil-blog.blogspot.com.

    I think that I recall when the Forest Products Lab released the report, but it didn’t jump out at me, even though the Lab is in Madison. Your post brought it back to mind. Thanks.
