This report reviews available studies of scenarios for residential wood and coal combustion and gathers together the various residential fuel use projections for the next 20 years for coal and wood, both on a national and regional basis. These studies show a slight increase in wood use and a relatively constant coal use. Projections for residential wood and coal combustion are largely dependent on the cost relative to the conventional fuels, which can only be roughly estimated at this time. A major increase in oil prices or disruption in oil supplies would have a substantial impact on both wood and coal combustion levels. Coal in particular is available in relatively large quantities if there is the demand while wood is expected to be a supply limited resource, with increasing competition for such uses as lumber, particleboard, pulp, and boiler fuel.
