Biomass in Finland made up for about 40% of overall renewable power generated in the year 2011. Wood and wood-based products are the main feedstock for biomass production in Finland as the country has abundant forestry. While bioliquids form the largest share in biomass power generation in Finland, currently solid biomass is expected to surpass bioliquids to become the largest biomass power generation source by the end of 2020 due to the lower cost of power generation offered by the technology.
Forestry land covers as much as 85% of Finland’s total land area, making wood and wood-based biomass feedstock abundant in the country. Based on a mature technology, biomass sector is well positioned to continue expanding its share in primary energy and electricity production. Its main advantage over other renewable energy sources is a stable power supply that is suitable for base-load service. Life-cycle net carbon emissions per unit of “bio-electricity” are below 10% of the emissions from fossil fuel-based electricity. This leads many to accept biomass as “carbon-neutral” energy source.
UPM Kymmene, Alholmens Kraft, Pohjolan Voima, and Vattenfall are the biggest players in the industry.
