Outlook on Biomass
The EU is by far the biggest pellet consumer worldwide, burning some 15 million
tonnes in 2012. According the
latest available fgures from
Aebiom, the European biomass energy association, biomass accounted for 8. 4 percent of the total fnal energy
consumption in Europe in 2011, while in some Baltic countries,
such as Estonia, Latvia, Finland and Sweden, the fgure is above
25 percent. The trade group adds that EU pellet consumption
for heating has grown by more than one million tonnes per year
Looking ahead, in a recent
Aebiom forecast scenario,
in 2020 the overall share of
renewable energy in Europe
will have reached 20. 7 percent, with biomass, including
transport, covering 56. 5 percent of total energy.
Their analysis of the
European Member State
National Renewable Energy Action Plans (NREAPs)
concludes that the total contribution of bioenergy in
2020 will be 138.3 Mtoe,
with heating by far the most
important sector — accounting for 65 percent of the
