Besides burning it for power and insulation what else could you use peat for?

This is the first time Iíve seen someone post the answer to their own question. Did you read through the tabs in the Wikipedia article that you linked? Aside from drying malted barley, it mentions agriculture, freshwater aquaria, water filtration, balneotherapy, and palaeoecology.

Islay.

If it wasn't for their peat they wouldn't have their Scotch.

As far as I'm concerned peat may be traditional for some Scotch but it's best left for gardens and power generation, it ruins an otherwise perfectly good Scotch.

A peat bog can be used for mummification as in the case of the Tollund Man.

I have to go to "Scotch School" someday; seriously. Rum school too.

So much to know.

Peat is used to make your soil acidic for growing blueberries.
