Brussels – Under embargo until November 21st 2017
Renewables are expected to provide Europe with 66 days’ worth of renewable energy in 2017, with as much as 41 days provided by bioenergy alone. Bioenergy has reached an all-time high in Europe – which is great news in light of the alarming announcements made by scientists on climate change at COP23. Because of this, a new information campaign, the ‘European Bioenergy Day’, aims at raising awareness on bioenergy’s pivotal role in the renewable energy transition.
While most Europeans support the transition towards renewables, they often lack a clear understanding of where the EU...
The biggest in Ukraine biomass boiler house with a capacity of 10.5 MW started working in Slavutych. The boiler house provides 40% of the city's demand in heat energy and hot water. Due to the transition to biofuels, gas savings in this heating season can reach 7 million cubic meters, and at least 4 million UAH.
Now the boiler house uses wood chips from state forestries as fuel, however, it is planned to plant around 1500 hectares of energy willow in the district to ensure sustainable supply of biofuel for the boiler house and a future bioCHP of 12.5 MWe and...
Goal: To demonstrate the economic efficiency of biomass energy plantations for energy production in Ukraine.
Target audience: agrarian companies, farmers, municipalities, business, state institutions.
Local communities are currently mostly dependent on fossil fuels, such as natural gas and coal, using these energy sources to generate heat. To stop this dependency while at the same time contributing to the development of the local economy can be energy such as biomass from plantations of specially grown energy crops. Low-yielding or abandoned land in regions at sustainable use can become a source of stable supply of biomass feedstock, for further use in local boiler-houses, supplying...
