Chater 16. Wood as a Source of Energy for Rural and Island Communities
Energy for Rural and Island Communities covers the proceedings of the conference held in Inverness, Scotland on September 22-24, 1980, which aims to gather several professionals concerned with energy supplies for island and rural communities in the 1980s. The papers in this collection are divided into six themes. The first three major topics the papers tackle are the strategy and action in providing energy resource to rural and island communities; the community energy use and generation; and the renewable energy supplies. Other papers discuss several energy sources such as wind, water, and sol
