Biomass statistics for 2021

Waste, bioenergy and geothermal | January 2022 - October 2022

For use in the preliminary and final 2021 annual energy statistics done by the Danish Energy Agency, Ea Energy Analyses estimated the consumption and import of solid biofuels based on, among other things, interviews with selected actors from the field and knowledge from specific projects. The estimate includes the usage of straw, wood chips, firewood, wood pellets, and wood waste outside the supply sector, as well as the import of biofuels in 2021.

The consumption numbers were categorised by usage in

  • Private homes
  • Public service
  • Agriculture
  • Industry

The project ran from January to October 2022.

Other studies

In earlier projects Ea Energy Analyses investigated the consumption of wood pellets and firewood, as well as a yearly estimate of biomass import and usage. Read more about these projects by following the links below.

The methodology behind the studies is described on the website of the Danish Energy Agency.
