Market
There is an incomprehension of the process of consume energy but let on the soil or burn biomass which can be source of energy
Local Capacities
There was already service companies/persons with capacities to start new biomass chains on prunings/plantation removal
Pruning Management
The management of the pruning/plantation removal is recognised to be expensive. Farmers found pruning for energy a good idea



Short summary of the initiative (<100 words)
Philippe Carille began this project to his own initiative to not waste energy, manage wood disease and be ecofriendly. He uses hiw own biomass for his self-consumption. He currently works with bales but should changes for big bags and why not pellets one day.
