Energy Wood Costs, Prices, Chopped Materials

Written by Reinhard Sperr on January 17, 2018 in Energy Plants Knowledgebase wood fuel

Important points for selling chopped materials from energy woods:

    • Weight (tons) or volumes (loosely packed cubic meters, solid cubic meters); dry substance or fresh mass; water content?
    • Area yields – average annual yield pro hectare (lower) or total yield in specific harvesting years (higher)
    • Parity – Where will the goods be passed? free at the edge of field, free at factory gate?

Profit contribution comparison to other crops: Fast rotation must represent an agricultural option, the bandwidths lie within the range of €150-700 for energy timber (as for 2012) and of -€50-+325 for industrial timber;

For profitability, the following points are critical:


    • Dry matter yields
    • Dry matter prices
    • Harvesting costs
    • Recommended minimal field sizes for applying a harvester start from 3- 5 ha

We would be pleased to help you calculate your energy wood areas!\
