Heat is the largest energy end use. Providing heat for homes, industry and other applications accounts for around half of total energy consumption. Nevertheless, from policy side renewable power gets much more attention than renewable heat.
Bioenergy is still the dominant type of renewable heat and has some unique assest; for example, it has the potential to provide renewable heat at high temperature for use in process industry and it can be produced from by-products.
This session will show relevant cases of biobased heat and dig deeper into emission abatement, which is a critical issue for biomass combustion.
