Savings and energy efficiency

In Spain bioenergy mobilizes almost 4.000 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.

 

 
On November 29, the "Bioenergy Day 2022" was celebrated in Spain, four days earlier than last year.
Europe's forests are under increasing pressure from rising temperatures, causing more forest fires, pests and diseases that threaten their ability to store carbon dioxide and safeguard biodiversity.
The Association of Heat and Cold Network Companies (ADHAC), has just recently published the 2022 Census of Heat and Cold Networks. This census adds 20 new heat networks, reaching a total of 516 heat and cold networks operating in Spain.
The consumption of pellets in Europe in pellet stoves and boilers with power up to 50kW for residential heating, reached 14,1 million tons in 2021, in 2020 it was 11,9 million, which indicates an increase of 18% more than the previous year. These are data from the latest Bioenergy Europe Statistical Report.
It will allow users savings of between 30% and 50% of their energy bill, compared to the current high prices. Through a modern renewable energy park in León that the Board will build, through Somacyl, green hydrogen will also be generated for mobility and industrial uses.
The Council of Ministers, at the request of the Ministry for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge, the Ministry of Finance and Public Function, and the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Digital Transformation, has approved a Royal Decree-Law 17/2022, of 20 September, with various energy-related measures, such as the VAT reduction from 21% to 5% on supplies of natural gas, pellets, briquettes and firewood, with savings for consumers of one
In this third auction, which was held on October 25, 2022, up to 100 MW corresponded to biomass in projects without power restrictions and another 40 MW for facilities with installed power equal to or less than 20 MW. MITECO has finally awarded 146 MW of biomass at a weighted average price of €93,09/MWh, with a maximum of €108,19/MWh and a minimum of €72,38/MWh.
ENSO will develop, build and manage the largest biomass cogeneration plant in Spain for the ACOR cooperative, owner of the largest sugar beet plant in Spain, and a member of AVEBIOM for several years.
The municipality of El Tiemblo, from Ávila, has received the Honorable Mention in the thirteenth edition of the @EnerAgen awards in the category 'Best Performance in the Matter of Renewable Energies', for its centralized biomass boiler project for the supply of heating and water heat ten municipal buildings using the wood chips as fuel.
Sugimat is a company associated with AVEBIOM, specializing in the design and manufacture of industrial biomass boilers The reference price of natural gas for the Iberian Peninsula has been rising gradually throughout 2021 and, now, with the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, it is increasing by more than 10 times its price a year ago.
The call will be published in the spring of 2022 and will be carried out through an incentive program for private companies and another aimed at the public sector, which will allow the start-up of biomass, solar thermal, geothermal, ambient energy ( aerothermal and hydrothermal) or heating and cooling microgrids of less than 1 MW of power. Once opened, it will be valid until December 31, 2023.
The Ministry for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge (MITECO) has selected 57 innovative biomass projects that accumulate 435 MW of power to produce thermal energy in 8 autonomous communities, which will receive public aid worth 33.666.035 euros. Projects in all economic sectors The substitution of equipment using fossil fuels for biomass boilers has been relevant in industries in the olive oil sector such as COOSUR, MIGASA, EL TEJAR, LAMARCA, AGOLIVES and in the beer sector such as ESTRELLA GALICIA or L.PERNIA.
