On June 30, the Royal Decree was published approving the direct concession to the autonomous communities of an incentive program linked to the implementation of renewable thermal systems in the residential sector, within the framework of the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Direct aid is included for the installation of biomass stoves that meet ECODESIGN and use certified fuels as pellet ENplus A1, among other renewable systems. The coordination and monitoring of this incentive program will be carried out by the Institute for Diversity and Energy Saving -Representative-, an entity dependent on the Ministry for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge.

It is expected to allocate a budget of 200 million from this specific program for the realization of thermal renewable energy installations in the residential sector, but it will initially be endowed with 100 million euros. It is key that professionals in the sector take advantage of these incentives quickly, and do not miss the unique opportunity to discover the news of the world's leading manufacturers of pellet stoves and boilers at the appointment of the year and go to EXPOBIOMASA, held from September 21 to 23 in Valladolid.

In Spain, energy consumption for thermal uses in 2019 accounted for around 33% of total final energy consumption, where the contribution of renewable energies is 19%, practically all of it being biomass. The improvement of these data to meet the objectives and commitments at the European level, as proposed by the Spanish Association of Biomass -AVEBIOM- in the value proposals to qualify for European funds Next Generation, goes univocally to promote the consumption of biomass of local and sustainable origin as a source of renewable energy through modern pellet stoves in our country.

Additionally, and in the short term, the impulse of the installation of pellet stoves will rapidly reduce the energy costs of consumers in the domestic sector, contributing significantly to the fight against energy poverty and to the improvement of the economy of citizens. Heating with pellets, for example, involves 50% savings compared to gas or diesel and much more when compared to the cost of heating with electricity. 

The budget processing of this incentive program will be through the different regional administrations, adjusting as much as possible to each reality and with maximum limits of 3.000 euros per pellet stove per dwelling. These limits raise an additional € 700 per biomass stove for publicly owned homes. Incentives are also provided for the withdrawal of obsolete and old equipment. As published by the RD, the aid will be 350 euros per kW of installed power.

The Government of Spain promotes these incentives because it understands that the development of these programs will favor the generation of employment throughout the territory, with a marked component of proximity and a high degree of capillarity, and an improvement in economic activity, in a context of recovery after the pandemic, induced by the different help lines. It is worth highlighting the benefit derived from the reduction of fossil fuel imports and the improvement of the competitiveness of companies. In addition to the aforementioned benefits, other positive social effects of these programs can be highlighted, such as support for the third sector, the development of municipalities with fewer than 5.000 inhabitants, or increased awareness and awareness of end consumers, thanks to the requirements introduced in terms of consumption monitoring.

The new SP Dual compact combustion boiler has two separate combustion chambers that meet all the requirements for both types of fuels. And it is distinguished by its maximum efficiency and maximum comfort, as well as its low level of emissions and low energy costs.

In addition, the SP Dual compact only has a heat exchanger, a return lift, a control and a flue pipe, which are used for the two operating modes.   

If, for the moment, it is preferred to use only wood, Fröling offers a flexible solution in which the pellet unit can be incorporated at any time.

The SP Dual compact offers significant benefits from the moment it enters the boiler room. Thanks to the compact design, it is extremely easy to mount, even in tight spaces. The pellet burner of the SP Dual compact has a complete insulating coating and is delivered with the necessary wiring ready to be connected. The single flue pipe design makes retrofitting the pellet unit easy.

Other advantages of the boiler are:

  • Large loading chamber for firewood logs up to 50cm long
  • High temperature resistant refractory material combustion chamber
  • Comprehensive safety concept
  • Unique air conduction
  • Water-cooled pellet burner with automatic sliding grill
  • RBG 3200 with remote control.

The Spanish Biomass Association, AVEBIOM, is the only association that since 2004 brings together the main economic actors in the bioenergy sector throughout the entire value chain, and whose objective is to promote the development of this business sector in Spain and contribute to increasing the consumption of biomass for energy purposes in a sustainable way. 

The Spanish Biomass Association, AVEBIOM, is the only association that since 2004 brings together the main economic actors in the bioenergy sector throughout the entire value chain, and whose objective is to promote the development of this business sector in Spain and contribute to increasing the consumption of biomass for energy purposes in a sustainable way. 

Since 2006, AVEBIOM has organized the Biomass Fair –EXPOBIOMASA-, with a large number of participants. In the last edition, held in September, 7.480 professional participants from 35 countries attended, becoming a very relevant activity for the revitalization of this sector.

This year a triple dimension of the event was proposed as a Fair linked to the energy use of solid biomass as a source of renewable energy, the Renewable Gas Hall and the International Bioenergy Congress.


In view of the success of previous editions and given the uncertainty of holding professional events in the city of Pisuerga, the Valladolid City Council considered collaboration in the activities carried out by AVEBIOM of maximum interest, due to the business, professional and technological nature of the themselves and for being a measure of support to the energy transition of the productive fabric, and in a particular way of the industrial sector of the city. 

Valladolid City Council works to promote innovation and support policies for the knowledge economy, to support entrepreneurship and companies, with strategic projects to attract investment and internationalize the city, in addition to promoting economic cooperation relationships and commercial as well as relations with institutions and associations of an economic and commercial nature. Within the scope of these powers, the Valladolid City Council is aware of the importance of boosting the bioenergy business sector, of great added value and key to the ecological transition, the promotion of innovation and technology in the energy sector sustainable, as well as its promotion in industrial and domestic use. The result has been a collaboration agreement between the Valladolid City Council and the Spanish Biomass Association to carry out activities to promote bioenergy, highlighting the celebration of the 2021 edition of ExpoBiomasa, as well as the parallel activities of the Show of the Renewable Gas and of the International Congress of Bioenergy.

The Spanish Biomass Association publicly recognized during the event that the successful celebration of the triple event was largely due to the collaboration agreement between the association itself and the Valladolid City Council. 
 

Javier Díaz, president of the Spanish Biomass Association, is satisfied with this particular edition of the fair and has expressed his gratitude both to the firms that have entrusted and supported the event and to the attendees: “all together we contribute to reactivate the sector of bioenergy ”. So read a banner at the entrance to the Feria de Valladolid.

Thanks to 7.480 trade visitors 

The fair and the show have received close to eight thousand professional visitors coming mainly from Spain, Portugal and Latin America during the 3 days of face-to-face event, held from September 21 to 23 in Valladolid.

During the next September 27 to 30, professionals accredited in Expobiomasa will be able to continue their meetings and close agreements and projects by video call through the digital platform LIVE.EXPOBIOMASA.COM 

In this same virtual space, around 400 professionals, mainly from Latin America, Spain and Portugal, have been able to attend the 14th International Bioenergy Congress (# CIB21) remotely. 

On the other hand, all the technical and commercial conferences that have been held in person during these three days and a series of videos of selected exhibitors will continue to be available to all those accredited on the live.expobiomasa.com platform and also openly through the channel YouTube's AVEBIOM.

In this way, professionals who have not been able to attend in person will have the opportunity to learn about some of the news about equipment, projects or regulations that have been presented at the fair and the show.

Optimistic environment for the near future of the activity in biomass and renewable gas during # CIB21

The current situation of the fossil fuel market, with the price of natural gas and CO2 emission rights skyrocketing, and the direction of aid policies in the EU towards reducing emissions and implementing renewable energies, place to biomass and renewable gas as energy alternatives more desirable than ever in the industrial field.

The president of AVEBIOM agrees with what was expressed by some of the most relevant technologists in the country at # CIB21: “thermointensive industries must undertake decarbonization processes sooner rather than later and the biomass sector is prepared to contribute successfully to that change ”.

Both in the sessions dedicated to renewable gas within # CIB21 and in the technical-commercial conferences organized openly by the Danish commercial office and the Renewable Gas Show, the public success has been enormous, with the rooms overflowing and a also high number of attendees online.  

At the 2050st Renewable Gas Show, it was found that there are mature technologies capable of obtaining multiple products, reducing emissions and producing renewable energy from waste management. Spain could be placed at the head of the countries that obtains the most energy from renewable gas in XNUMX.
