Country energy & cogeneration reports

The report covers ten participating countries plus further eight countries.

Austria, Italy, Belgium, Luxembourg, Bulgaria, Netherlands, Denmark, Portugal,
France, Slovenia, Finland, Spain, Germany, Sweden, Greece, Turkey, Ireland, United Kingdom.

The survey used an extensive number of information sources, including national government statistics and reports (e.g. central statistics offices; reports by Ministries; energy regulatory authorities), international reviews by agencies (e.g. OECD, International Energy Agency) and trade associations (Euroheat and Power, COGEN Europe); European reports (from networks such as EUBIONET) and statistics (particularly Eurostat); plus the BioCogen partners’ own databases.

Country reports followed a standard format and include:
- Overview of the energy sector.

- Review of policies legislation and support mechanisms for renewable energy and CHP.

- Details of CHP and biomass CHP activities and plants.

The country reports are a thorough and up-to-date review of biomass cogeneration for many countries across Europe (18 countries from the EU25 plus Turkey). The country reports provided valuable background information for other BioCogen tasks. They are a useful deliverable in their own right. The document gives information over a wide geographic area, which is useful for promoters of biomass cogeneration and insights to national situations for developers, investors and industry.
