Biomass potentials of North Rhine-Westphalia

 2013: On behalf of the State Office for Nature, Environment and Consumer Protection (LANUV) North Rhine-Westphalia, ├ľko-Institut and Fraunhofer Institute for Environmental, Safety and Energy Technology UMSICHT (project management) worked on a regionally specific study to identify  the biomass potential for NRW. The aim was to generate basic information to support the expansion of renewable energies in NRW. The results should, inter alia, serve to define the electricity and heat demand in the counties of NRW that can be covered by renewable energies respectively biomass. The existing facilities and already implemented services and feasible potential in the field of electricity and heat from biomass in the country - demonstrated forestry and waste sectors are presented.
