Ignite was developed in the North East of England in 2004 and since then has grown into the UK’s only integrated woodfuel training course leading to a recognised qualification from Lantra Awards. Over 500 people have benefitted from the Ignite course, which is delivered by a team of experienced and enthusiastic trainers.
The Ignite one-day seminar is designed to introduce those working with farms and estates to the opportunities provided by woodfuel for self-supply from woodland and forest resources and the chance to look beyond estate boundaries to other opportunities in the renewable energy sector. The seminar introduces the concept of renewable energy and looks in more detail at the opportunities afforded by woodfuel including woodfuel heating technologies and woodfuel processing and handling equipment. The seminar also involves a visit to a working woodfuel boiler system.
