La filière bois-énergie en Auvergne : une typologie des chaînes d'approvisionnement

Abstract : With increasing environmental and energy concerns, the use of wood as an energy source has been encouraged by public policies in France. The development of a wood-energy market also represents an economic opportunity for rural areas. Who are the stakeholders contributing to the wood-energy supply and how they interact is still not well-known. The paper offers a typology of wood-energy supply chains as they have developed in Auvergne. Private residential use mainly relies on wood pellets supplied by distributors. The supply of local governments, mostly based on sawmill residues, is characterized by the participation of one or several suppliers able to produce large fuel quantities. Most businesses using wood-energy are part of the timber industry and thus consume the residues of their activity. Identifying the types of supply chains and their relative importance also shows that the wood-energy supply has developed mainly at the local level and that producers are increasingly adapting to the specific features of the wood fuel demand.
