Savings and energy efficiency

In Spain bioenergy mobilizes almost 4.000 million euros between electricity, thermal generation and biofuels for transport. And it is, without a doubt, the renewable energy source that best meets the postulates of the bioeconomy, involving thousands of professionals from different sectors.

Service, financial, communication companies, investment groups, public companies, administrations, professional and business associations promote and participate in many projects in order to implement solutions for both consumers and professionals.

A key sector for job posting, which take advantage of own resources and proximity reducing energy dependence and the import of oil and gas. The pellet industries cannot be relocated and they are all in small municipalities that fill them with life.

 

 
The Council of Ministers, at the request of the Ministry for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge, the Ministry of Finance and Public Function, and the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation, has approved a Royal Decree-Law 17/2022, of 20 September, with various energy-related measures, such as the VAT reduction from 21% to 5% on supplies of natural gas, pellets, briquettes and firewood, with savings for consumers of one
In this third auction, to be held on October 25, 2022, up to 100 MW correspond to biomass in projects without power restrictions and another 40 MW for facilities with installed power equal to or less than 20 MW.
ENSO will develop, build and manage the largest biomass cogeneration plant in Spain for the ACOR cooperative, owner of the largest sugar beet plant in Spain, and a member of AVEBIOM for several years.
The municipality of El Tiemblo, from Ávila, has received the Honorable Mention in the thirteenth edition of the @EnerAgen awards in the category 'Best Performance in the Matter of Renewable Energies', for its centralized biomass boiler project for the supply of heating and water heat ten municipal buildings using the wood chips as fuel.
Sugimat is a company associated with AVEBIOM, specializing in the design and manufacture of industrial biomass boilers The reference price of natural gas for the Iberian Peninsula has been rising gradually throughout 2021 and, now, with the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, it is increasing by more than 10 times its price a year ago.
The call will be published in the spring of 2022 and will be carried out through an incentive program for private companies and another aimed at the public sector, which will allow the start-up of biomass, solar thermal, geothermal, ambient energy ( aerothermal and hydrothermal) or heating and cooling microgrids of less than 1 MW of power. Once opened, it will be valid until December 31, 2023.
The Ministry for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge (MITECO) has selected 57 innovative biomass projects that accumulate 435 MW of power to produce thermal energy in 8 autonomous communities, which will receive public aid worth 33.666.035 euros. Projects in all economic sectors The substitution of equipment using fossil fuels for biomass boilers has been relevant in industries in the olive oil sector such as COOSUR, MIGASA, EL TEJAR, LAMARCA, AGOLIVES and in the beer sector such as ESTRELLA GALICIA or L.PERNIA.  
The Forestalia biomass power generation plant, located in Cubillos del Sil, has made a positive assessment of its start-up. In its first year of operation, it has generated 225.000 MWh, the electricity consumed by 56.250 homes.
"The webinar was an interesting contact for our companies and also for Canadian organizations on an issue with great potential for development in both countries, such as biomass power generation, an important resource in both Canada and Spain", according to Javier Díaz, president of AVEBIOM.
In the latest report from the Biomass Observatory for 2020, it has compiled 433 biomass heat networks, which represent about 383 MW of installed thermal power. The progression of the implementation of biomass heat networks in our country is clearly positive; Since 2010, when the first 30 were inventoried, the number of facilities has multiplied by almost 15 to 433 located at the end of 2020, and to which we must add fifty in different stages of development.
AVEBIOM organizes on February 23 the free webinar “Emissions from biomass. Are they accounting well? " to show that the methodology used to estimate emissions must clearly distinguish obsolete and inefficient equipment from technified biomass systems, which fully comply with the Ecodesign regulations.
The Spanish Association of Biomass has presented two projects to the Government of Spain to promote the implementation of biomass as a source of renewable energy in municipalities with less than 5.000 inhabitants.
