A comparative analysis of the impact on employment of a wood-based heating system. The wood-energy potential is important in Wallonia (Belgium). Utilization of fuel wood in heating plants decreases the greenhouse gases emissions, but, more importantly, leads to jobs creation – direct jobs linked to the operation of a heating plant, indirect jobs linked to the implementation of a plant. An evaluation of direct jobs created by a 585 kW wood heating plant has been conducted on the basis of a wood supply with logging residues and short rotation coppices and has been compared to direct jobs created by a fuel oil heating system. Economic secondary effects of new jobs (net employment) created by fuel wood supply chains are assessed.
