Biomass for heating is the largest and most common bioenergy use in Sweden. Heat is needed for space heating in homes, public buildings, offices and industries, and for process heat in industries, for buildings on farms, for greenhouses, etc.

Bioheat today accounts for more than half of all space heating in the housing and service sectors, either through direct use in boilers, or indirectly through production of heat in heat plants and use as district heat. All kinds of biomass are used, but the predominant type is forest biomass – wood fuels from forestry and forest-based industries.
