From sustainable biomass to competitive bioenergy

Today, approximately 70% of renewable energy consumption in Denmark is bioenergy-based, mostly in the form of straw, wood and renewable wastes. This White Paper gives an overview of Denmark’s solutions, cases and experiences in transforming sustainable biomass resources into competitive bioenergy solutions.

Bioenergy in Denmark

Bioenergy is a cornerstone in the Danish renewable energy mix. Today, approximately 70% of renewable energy consumption in Denmark is bioenergy-based, mostly in the form of straw, wood and renewable wastes.

Denmark has utilised biomass to produce bioenergy for decades, in fact, the consumption of biomass for energy production in Denmark more than quadrupled between 1980 and 2009, and towards 2020, bioenergy will continue to make up the majority of total renewable energy consumption in Denmark. From a global perspective, Denmark has one of the most efficient bioenergy clusters in the world. This is possible due to well-developed technologies for bioenergy production, biomass handling and exploitation.

Inside this White Paper

The aim of this White Paper is to share some of Denmark’s solutions and experiences in transforming sustainable biomass resources into competitive bioenergy solutions. We have gathered a selection of knowledge-cases and technological examples, each demonstrating opportunities and lessons learned from different stakeholders across the Danish bioenergy landscape. The content provides insights into the development of bioenergy solutions in Denmark, and the frameworks needed to further enable these developments.
