Biomass

As the owner of Statkraft Varme, Statkraft is involved in energy generation based on wood-based biomass in Norway and Sweden.

In Germany, we are responsible for all operation, including the fuel supply, of two co-owned biomass-fuelled power plants. The main biofuel is used wood from construction sites and municipal, commercial and industrial refuse facilities. Using wood as a fuel recovers its energy and replaces fossil fuels. Wood captures and stores CO2 by photosynthesis. The same amount of CO2 is released during energy conversion, making wood a carbon-neutral fuel. Statkraft is currently looking at a number of opportunities in the Nordic district heating and biomass market, and is very interested in commercial propositions for using waste wood.
