More state sector organisations and schools will be supported to switch to clean energy as part the Government's plan for a carbon neutral public sector by 2025. Wood energy does not contribute to the greenhouse effect. Organisations can reduce their greenhouse gas footprint by switching to wood energy.

Quality is guaranteed
Ara Institute warms up with wood pellets
“The reduced downtime and reduction in maintenance costs is a game-changer for us, as they allow the boiler to run on its automatic settings, with just the standard daily ash clearance being cleaned up easily with a small shovel. In the time we have been burning Azwood wood pellets, we haven’t had to shut down the boiler for clinker clearing, maintenance or otherwise, which is a significant cost saving.” - Ara Institute of CanterburyRead the Case Study
St Paul’s Primary students play on Bounce® Bark
“We identified we had a playground bark issue at the school that hadn’t been replaced in a couple of years which had deteriorated over time, so for health and safety reasons, we needed to upgrade. Regarding quality, we settled on Bounce® Bark because it looked robust. Once it was delivered, we were really happy with it, and it was exactly what we wanted. Azwood’s communication was great throughout the entire process, and we got all our questions answered.” - Lester Binns, St Paul's SchoolWatch: St Paul's Bounce® Bark story

Commercial pellet fuel
"The thing I love about Azwood pellets is the repeatability, I know when I get the fuel, it’s the same every time. I know I can tune the boiler to the pellets and get the output I need. We are impressed with the way Azwood is leading the industry. They have put a lot of work into coming up with standards for wood energy and they are very proactive with coming up with good solutions."
