Brochure with mail-in registration form


The production of wood-based energy products in general, and wood pellets, in particular, is increasing in the United States. In this context, it is crucial to understand issues related to the sustainability of wood-based energy products (e.g., current and future markets, carbon intensity, the unit cost of production, land use changes, certification) for developing a better understanding of one of the fastest growing industries within the forestry sector. A mix of virtual lectures and firsthand exercises will help workshop participants develop fundamental skills for evaluating the overall sustainability of a wood-based energy enterprise.
Who Will Benefit?
Private and state foresters, mill managers, sustainability managers, non-profits, and members of forestry associations will benefit from this course.
Dr. Puneet Dwivedi is an Associate Professor of Sustainability Sciences at the University of Georgia Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources. He specializes in wood-based energy development, forest certification, land use change, and family forest landowners. He has published eighty refereed articles covering various aspects of forestry in the United States and beyond. He can be reached at
