Wood fuel is a term used to describe any use of wood as a source of energy. The most common use of this term would generally relate to the use of wood for heating houses, but other uses exist, including things like generators that run on wood chips, and steam engines that rely on burning wood. Wood is considered a form of renewable energy, and it is one of the oldest energy sources in the history of mankind.
People have generally been burning wood and using it to heat their dwellings since the earliest parts of history. In fact, there were many times and places in history where wood was the primary source of energy used to cook food and heat homes. Even now, many people still use wood heating in their homes and many experts suggest that it has some advantages over some other sources of fuel.
