Enhanced forest biomass utilization
'Forest Power' project
Forest Power is a cross‐border research and development project (2009-2012) between Finland, Sweden and Norway which aims to increase the utilization of forest biomass in the Botnia‐Atlantica area.
The project aims to increase the value and quality of products and services within the forest fuel supply, feed-stock conversion and combustion chains. It also aims to increase the general knowledge about the renewable forest energy sources and utilization within the Botnia-Atlantica area.
Through intensive research, development and extension work project Forest Power will also promote EU's RES directive's target to increase the share of the renewable energy of the total energy consumption in European Union up to 20 %. The target groups of the project include forest owners, heating plant managers, machine entrepreneurs and other forestry professionals.
