Jämtland: a county fuelled by biomass

Length: 8’42”

Date of production: November 2005

Subject: In Jämtland County, a sparely populated and densely wooded are in central Sweden, more than 60% of all heat and power is derived from renewable sources. The county’s aim is to become a 100% renewable energy region by 2015. This ambitious target can be reached this thanks to immense natural resources, notably woods and forests covering 99% of the Jämtland’s territory and being an extraordinary source of biomass.
Jämtland county has made an impressive progress in using the biomass for heating and power generation. In its only city Östersund, the combined heat and power plant fuelled with biomass supplies 25 000 households. Similar small-scale clean heating solutions are applied in villages across Jämtland. The County’s Energy Agency makes regular presentations about the benefits of bio-fuels in Jämtland’s 8 municipalities. And the efforts are paying off – consumers convert overwhelmingly to alternative heating mostly derived from biomass. Since 1997 the use of heating oil has decreased by 40%.
