ENERWOODS at Skog og Tre 2017 conference.
ENERWOODS is a project that focuses on increased utilization of wood-based bioenergy
Rebecka Mc Carthy of NEPCon presented the ENERWOODS project at the Skog og Tre 2017 (Forrest and Tree 2017) conference in Oslo today. The project was presented at a session focusing on biofuels, specifically on the question “How can Norwegian forestry contribute to developing an industry on Norwegion biofuels?”
ENERWOODS is a project funded by Nordic Energy Research under the programme Sustainable Energy Systems 2050. It aims at strengthening the role of Nordic forestry as a significant contributor to the development of competitive, efficient and renewable energy systems. The project objectives and dissemination strategies involve two temporal scopes:
- Short term (2011-2020), with focus on increased utilization of wood based bioenergy from today’s Nordic forest, building on the current energy infrastructure and use of fossil resources.
- Long term (2020-2050+), where fossil resources will be reduced to a minimum from the energy supply and forestry exhibits an increase in productivity.
