Savings and energy efficiency

In Spain bioenergy mobilizes 3.700 million euros between electricity, thermal generation and biofuels for transport. And it is, without a doubt, the renewable energy source that best meets the postulates of the bioeconomy, involving thousands of professionals from different sectors.

Service, financial, communication companies, investment groups, public companies, administrations, professional and business associations promote and participate in many projects in order to implement solutions for both consumers and professionals.

A key sector for job posting, which take advantage of own resources and proximity reducing energy dependence and the import of oil and gas. The pellet industries cannot be relocated and they are all in small municipalities that fill them with life.


Spain managed to reduce its CO6,2 emissions by 2% in 2019. That is what the Advance of Greenhouse Gas Emissions, published by the Ministry for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge at the beginning of summer, indicated. The final data will be produced throughout this fall, this figure supports the viability of using non-fossil energy sources.
In the basement there is a biomass boiler, for burning native wood chips, as a central source of energy for the heating system and for the production of sanitary hot water. The chips are discharged from the street through two mouths specifically designed to facilitate supply. This warehouse is connected to the boiler through an auger that allows the supply of this natural fuel to be automated.
SOLZAIMA begins production this month in its new factory. This investment is the result of the growth that the firm has had over the more than 39 years dedicated to the manufacture of equipment and biomass heating systems
The start-up of 380 MW in 2025 represents an increase in demand for biomass of forestry and agricultural origin of about 4 million tons. Currently, with some 900 MW operating in Spain, the demand is around 9 million tons of biomass, mainly residues from the oil industry, the wood and paper industry, and other biofuels of forest and agricultural origin.
The award ceremony will take place on December 3, Bioenergy Day in Spain. The Spanish Biomass Association (AVEBIOM) awards the 'Fomenta la Bioenergía 2020' award to Christian Rakos, current president of the World Bioenergy Association, in recognition of the solid collaboration that, in a personal capacity, he has maintained with AVEBIOM in the dissemination and development of the solid biomass sector for energy uses in Spain for 16 years.
With a sales volume of 24.000 tons of biomass per year, ESE Salamanca provides sustainable and comfortable heating to 90.000 users. Bioenergy Barbero is committed to digitization in the maintenance of centralized heating and hot water systems powered by biomass, a constant commitment to innovation. The company specializing in the change from coal to biomass boilers in neighboring communities has innovative remote management systems that facilitate remote control of the facilities. 
Calls for grants for investment in thermal and electric energy production facilities from renewable sources, co-financed with ERDF funds, have been opened in the autonomous communities of Andalusia, Aragon, Principality of Asturias, Cantabria, Castilla-La Mancha, Catalonia, Extremadura, La Rioja, Madrid, Melilla, Region of Murcia and the Valencian Community.

Undoubtedly, the 15th edition of FITECMA, to be held from July 14 to 17, 2021, at the Costa Salguero Center, in the City of Buenos Aires, will present a completely renewed profile. The inclusion of new thematic areas and the development of special activities will allow working on the concept of including the entire chain of the forest industry. Allocating a specific area to Bioenergy (biomass, technology and materials for the generation of thermal energy) goes in that direction.
Renewable energies continue to bring socio-economic benefits by creating numerous jobs around the world. The sector reached 11,5 million jobs globally in 2019, around 500.000 more than the previous year. These are the figures published by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) in the seventh edition of Renewable Energy and Jobs - Annual Review.
The wood components factory located in Torelló, Spain, has taken an important step towards carbon neutrality thanks to a new biomass plant. From now on, Quadpack Wood will use its own wood waste to generate power for its dryers and heating and air conditioning systems, thus eliminating the need for fossil fuels.
The Junta de Extremadura has approved aid for the start-up of three biomass pellet production plants in Moraleja, Caminomorisco and Herrera del Duque. What will be the main characteristics?
The Ministry for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge, through the Institute for Energy Diversification and Saving (IDAE), has approved the first calls for aid from the package to finance innovative projects of renewable technologies. More than 181 million euros will be allocated to support initiatives in seven regions of Spain:
