The Residual Forest Biomass Program

Last updated: 16 April 2019
The Residual Forest Biomass Program  aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and fossil fuel consumption by financing energy conversion projects for residual forest biomass.
The Residual Forest Biomass Program is offered to businesses, institutions and municipalities that use fossil fuels and commit to measurably and sustainably reduce consumption through the implementation of conversion measures to residual forest biomass.


It is aimed at both small and large energy consumers. Smaller energy users have non-electrical energy consumption of less than 36,000 GJ per year, while large consumers have a consumption greater than or equal to 36,000 GJ per year.
