Sweden's electricity supply in 2014. Svebio calculation based on statistics from Sweden Energy Agency.


Electricity produced from biomass is called biopower. Biopower is today, after nuclear- and hydropower, the fourth largest source of electricity in Sweden. Biopower is produced by biomass, usually wood fuels, burning in a furnace connected to a boiler. This occurs in a CHP-plant. The heat generated is used to heat the water vapor which in turn makes the turbine rotate, and electricity can be generated. The excess heat is distributed through a district heating network to homes and industrial users. It is as easy as it sounds - Bioenergy delivers electricity and heat!
Svebio yearly produces a map over all the biopower production units in Sweden. This map shows biopower production at 202 locations, and another 30 planned units.
