HPBA just released shipment numbers for 2012 and as I looked at numbers, I realized pellet stoves were gaining a far bigger share of the stove market than I'd realized. They almost outsold wood stoves in 2006 and 2008. Is that news to others, or just to me? This appears to be a pretty amazing renewable energy success story that DOE, EPA and states are ignoring. Mainstream press should be picking up on this. If anyone is interested, here is an analysis of how pellet stoves captured such a big market share: http://forgreenheat.blogspot.com/2013/03/pellet-stoves-make-huge-gains-in-market.html.
