The energy source has nothing to do with the Eagle Ford Shale.
The source is the hated mesquite wood.

“We looked all over the world for a stable and big source of biomass. We found the source in Texas,” Zdenek Mayer said. He's business director and CEO for GreenHeart Energy LLC, the Texas division of GreenHeart Energy, based in Duchcov, Czech Republic.

GreenHeart Energy LLC has selected San Antonio for its Texas company's headquarters — for legal, banking and accounting purposes — but most of its activities will occur near and in Corpus Christi.

"Hated mesquite wood"? Who hates mesquite wood? It's great for barbecues.

So a Czech company is going to clear cut south Texas mesquite to help European utilities? "You take our trees leaving us a desert, and we'll give you a supply of energy." Sounds like a fair deal.
