The study analyses data obtained from the production of energy chips from logging residues. Geographically, the data come from the south-eastern portion of the Czech Republic. 6,671 t of energy chips were analysed by means of samples, their total energy content being 63.92 TJ. Based on the results of laboratory analyses of samples of wood chips with energy contents, ratio (reference) variables were derived and can be used as input (basic) data for the modelling of the energy potential of logging residues of the territory.Keywords:wood chips; renewable sources; energy potentialReferences:
