AEA Technology Environment is the organisation within which ETSU is located. The company is involved with the implementation of renewable energy technologies including creating markets for wood fuel in the UK.


ETSU, created in 1975, is a state agency promoting the use of renewable energy and « clean » coal for the British Department of Trade and Industry. The organisation is also working on a European and international scale.



Wood-fuel expertise


AEA Technology Environment has pioneered the development of wood heat as a service provided by newly created local business activities in the rural sector. This approach is being demonstrated through a number of local initiatives in the UK.


ETSU has brought financial support to research & development projects, especially under the NFFO programme. It participates in European and international networks such as OPET and CADDET.
