Woody biomass

Woody biomass, such as wood pellets and wood chips, are a necessity to supplement intermittent energy sources such as solar energy and wind power

The burning of wood as a fuel source is a centuries-old practice. Today, wood is still the most widespread form of biomass in Europe, as it is recognised that woody biomass offers significant environmental benefits. By utilising forestry residues and agricultural by-products, waste is avoided. Provided the forest is managed sustainably, a continuous cycle of harvesting and regrowth occurs, making biomass a low-cost, low carbon, multipurpose option that can be used as a baseload fuel for both heat and power generation in combined heat and power plants. In Denmark, woody biomass and straw account for almost 70 per cent of renewable-energy consumption, where they provide stability and balance to the grid.
