Annual EU report projects increased pellet, biogas consumption (UK)


The European Union recently published its annual biofuels report for 2013 with the USDA Foreign Agricultural Service’s Global Agricultural Information Network, reporting that the European Commission expects solid biomass for heat and power generation will play an important role in meeting renewable energy targets. According to the report, the European Biomass Association expects consumption of wood pellets in the EU to rise drastically, reaching 20 to 32 million tons of oil equivalent (Mtoe), or approximately 50 to 80 million metric tons, by 2020. Consumption of wood pellets was only 2.5 Mtoe in 2008.
