European Wood Pellet Consumption Set to Soar in 2020 with the Onset of Increased Demand from the UK, Denmark and Netherlands.”




The arrival of the world’s largest dedicated biomass plant in the UK in 2020 will add significant wood pellet growth to the European market. The 300MW MGT plant is scheduled to start in the first-half of 2020 and will be joined by the ramp up of pellet consumption in the Netherlands by German utilities RWE and Uniper.


On the supply side, the search for new supply continues with Asia and Europe competing for North American supply. The Baltic region and Russia is forecast to fill the supply gap with record exports expected from the region in 2020.


The European wood pellet market witnessed record spot prices in 2019 and early indications suggest the outlook for producers is positive for the year ahead with the onset of strong growth in pellet demand.


CMT's 5th Biomass Trade & Power Europe returns to Copenhagen for an exciting and interactive discussion with senior industry stakeholders, addressing key issues and critical pain points.  With the conference kicking off at noon, ample networking time is catered for you to meet partners within the two days.

Industry News

GEEN Holding - Czech Republic’s energy investment group – has started a new biomass power plant in Zupania, eastern Croatia. With a capacity of 4.96 MW of electricity and 8 MW of heat, the new power plant will use wood chips and pellets as feedstock.
The Zupanja plant has completed its trial production successfully. It will produce 40 GWh of electricity annually.
Built at a cost of 39.2 million euros, it is GEEN’s second biomass power plant in Croatia.
GEEN’s first biomass-fired plant in Croatia started operations in Benkovac, in Zadar county in 2018. There are further plans to start a third biomass power facility in the Adriatic state.
The three power plants are expected to be built at 120 million euros, while the estimated annual revenue from the investment is expected to total of 24 million euros.
For latest updates on Europe’s biomass power market, attend CMT’s 5th Biomass Trade & Power Europe on 5-6 February, 2020 in Copenhagen.

Europe’s utility – RWE targets to become carbon neutral by 2040. The company has already reduced its CO2 emissions by one-third from 2012 to 2018, representing a decline of 60 million metric tons.
Further RWE plans an additional 70% reduction of CO2 by 2030 and to achieve that it plans to decommission its last coal-fired power station in the UK. RWE also plans to decommission its coal-fired power plants in Germany.
In Netherlands, RWE is in the process of converting the plants in Eemshaven and Amer to fire biomass as the Dutch government aims to end the country’s coal-based electricity generation to end by 2030.
RWE is also making huge investments in wind and solar energy as well as high-performance storage technologies.
The utility aims to use green gas to generate power and has committed to spend €1.5bn net per annum to build a cleaner portfolio, a sum that is expected to double via partnerships.
The renewable energy portfolios of E.ON and innogy, combined to form RWE Renewables, will make RWE’s installed renewable energy capacity at over 9 GW. This is in addition to the under construction assets with a combined capacity of 2.6 GW.

EU’s market for wood pellets has been rising over the last few years. USDA Foreign Agricultural Service’s Global Agricultural Information Network’s report states that almost 50% of the EU’s renewable energy is generated from solid biomass such as wood chips and pellets (but doesn’t include municipal solid waste).
The rise in biomass energy production in EU has already led to an increase in biomass consumption, as the region now consumes approximately 75% of the world’s wood pellets and accounts for about 50% of global production. Wood pellets consumption in 2019 is expected to rise to 30 million metric tons from 27.35 million metric tons of wood pellets last year. The region is expected to witness an increase in wood pellet imports to 12.2 million metric tons this year, up from 10.355 million metric tons in 2018.
At 8 million metric tons of wood pellets consumption, the UK leads the market followed by Italy at 3.75 million metric tons, Denmark at 3.5 million metric tons, Germany at 2.19 million metric tons and Sweden at 1.785 million metric tons. France, Belgium, Austria, Spain, the Netherlands and Poland are the other leading consumers of wood pellets in the EU.
Although the current demand for wood pellets in EU is rising, USDA Foreign Agricultural Service’s Global Agricultural Information Network’s report also warns that sustainability requirements introduced by individual member states can impede future expansions.
EU’s wood pellets consumption and production is further discussed at CMT’s 5th Biomass Trade & Power Europe on 5-6 February, 2020 in Copenhagen.
