The world energy matrix has been evolving, and new alternatives in relation to renewable energies too – mainly solar and wind. Brazil also follows this trend. On the other hand, there are other sources of renewable energy which have a great potential for Brazil’s development. In this study, the wood briquette is analyzed, made from wood waste (sawdust, wood chips and wood shaving), besides trees pruning – in the region of São José dos Campos (SP) and the barriers faced in this market. Such barriers have been initially mapped by researchers, and here an analysis is made along with the main stakeholders involved. In order to do this, a quantitative research has been carried out with the research- action method, in which it has been identified that agricultural and forestry barriers do not have a great highlight for those involved; also, there is not much data relating to the briquette market and, in the Institutional barrier, there is a lack of organization in the sector. Issues related to Cultural, Educational and Technological barriers have had a great emphasys in this study. A researcher’s consideration to be highlighted is that the Environmental barrier has not presented great prominence for those involved, but rather financial issues– either for the investor or pizzeria owners. Likewise, researches are recommended to provide data to the sector, as well as courses to seek the professionalization in the sector – which is extremely lacking in specialized resources. The use of sawmill waste (sawdust) also has had a prominent position, because it has not been known there was such a high availability of raw material in the market. Finally, it has been identified that the briquette has a great development potential in the sector, despite the barriers mapped.
