“The outlook for biomass consumption and production is strong in the Nordic and Baltic areas, with the geographical proximity of the Baltic producer region to the mainly consumer area of the Nordics supporting international trade growth,” said Laura Tovey-Fall, Editor of Argus Biomass Markets. “In the Nordic region, at least a further 600MW of wood chip demand capacity is scheduled to become operational by the end of next year, with further projects planned for the coming years.”

Agenda highlights will include a spotlight on raw feedstock availability, featuring a workshop led by Didzis Palejis, President of European biomass association Bioenergy Europe, and a panel debate on supply and demand led by representatives of CM Biomass Partners, Hofor, SBE Latvia, Stockholm Exergi and Orsted. As well as providing attendees with insight into tackling supply shortages, the sessions will analyse current biomass volumes in the Nordics, the use of waste wood as a biomass source, and discuss relationship-building to secure long-term contracts.
