the United States, the most commonly used value for expressing the energy value or heat content of a fuel is the British thermal unit (Btu). One Btu is the amount of energy needed to raise the temperature of one pound of water one degree Fahrenheit (F), when water is at about 39 degrees F.

One “therm” isBtu. Btu Content of Fuels. Much of the data used in earlier energy estimates are from the book Energy in the American EconomyIts History and Prospects by Sam Schurr and Bruce Netschert.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Circular No. Fuel Wood Used in the United States –, published inprovides some of the earliest biomass consumption estimates for the United States.

This only increased as the United States industrialized. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, wood use for fuel spiked aroundproviding 90 percent of railroad fuel. USDA Forest Service - Forest Products Laboratory. Wood fuel is considered to be a renewable resource.

Its associated carbon cycle is assumed to be neutral. The actual burning of wood within the heating plant emits CO 2, which is captured by young annual heating plant CO 2 assessment CO 2 ws is calculated from the emissions linked to transport (wood, ash and workers, CO 2 tr (w) + CO 2 tr (ash) + CO 2 tr (e)) and upstream emissions.

The Monthly Energy Review's pre estimates of U.S. energy use are based on two sources: Sam Schurr and Bruce Netschert’s Energy in the American Economy, – Its History and Prospects and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Circular No.
