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.
Historical maximums are reached in the installation of equipment and the total installed power. This equipment is used to generate thermal energy of renewable and local origin to, above all, provide industrial heat and supply domestic heating.
"Everything that burns in a boiler, stops burning in the forest." This is how forceful Francesc Cano is, deputy director of transfer at the Center for Forestry Science and Technology of Catalonia (CTFC). Cano refers to forest biomass that is extracted from forests to be used for energy purposes. A biomass to which more and more industries are switching due to the high price of gas.
At the end of 2021, 497.556 pellet stoves and boilers were operating in Spain, 74.655 more than the previous year. Sales of equipment for domestic use, up to 50kW of power, have increased by 40,3%.
  The forestry and bioenergy sectors, the administration and conservationists warn that the use of biomass is vital for the adaptation of our mountains to climate change and thus reduce the virulence of forest fires.
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 sixth edition of the Galiforest Abanca monograph will once again bring together the forestry world from June 30 to July 2. It will be, as usual, at the Sergude Agroforestry Training and Experimentation Center, in the Boqueixón town hall, very close to Santiago de Compostela.
Elmia Wood has received this year 25.885 visitors from dozens of countries in a still complex situation to travel and with a considerable decrease in exhibiting firms
The Spanish Association of Stove Manufacturers (Aefecc) has presented in recent days data on an increase in sales of around 30%. "Faced with one of the biggest energy crises in Europe, manufacturers of fireplaces and stoves want to highlight the economic and environmental benefits of a great forgotten in the Spanish market", they assure from Aefecc.
EUROSTAT publishes the average prices that consumers in Spain have paid, taxes included, for energy in December 2021, before the price escalation caused by the war in Ukraine. Electricity had already risen 23% during 2021, gas 22% and heating oil 46%. Few experts in the sector believe that the problems of gas and diesel supply will not become more pronounced and prolonged over time with restrictive policies in the coming years throughout Europe, both economic and environmental.
AVEBIOM proposes to celebrate the 15th edition of EXPOBIOMASA during the second week of May 2023 with the aim of promoting the participation and attendance of the largest possible number of professionals interested in the sector.
The Official Association of Forestry Engineers has proposed to the Government, on the International Day of Forests, that a reduced VAT of 10% be applied, instead of the current 21%, to biomass of forest origin consumed by families for energy use . Such VAT reduction would mean a considerable saving estimated at 8% of the final cost of biomass.
