Biomass in Randers, Norddjurs and Syddjurs municipalities – an analysis of supply chains

Denmark | April 2010 - July 2010

Ea Energy Analyses has carried out supply chain analyses of selected biomass resources and evaluated the possibilities of increased production and utilisation of biomass in the municipalities of Randers, Norddjurs and Syddjurs (in Jutland). The resources selected for the study were manure for biogas, straw, forest wood residues and energy crops for CHP production.

On the basis of the current energy structure and the future energy goals of the three municipalities, the possibilities of increased use of biomass for energy production and the consequences of the utilisation of each of the resources have been evaluated with respect to the environmental, economic and social aspects of the utilisation.

Part of the project Enercoast
The project was carried out for the Innovation Network for Biomass, INBIOM. The analysis is a part of the project Enercoast that aims at developing a market for biomass in the North Sea region in cooperation with partners from Germany, United Kingdom, Norway and Sweden. INBIOM is head of the Danish part of the Enercoast project.
