Energy from wood – policies, logistics and economics of bioenergy in Nordic countries

Energy from wood – policies, logistics and economics of bioenergy in Nordic countries

The three countries visited – Denmark, Sweden and Finland – have all developed
bioenergy as their principal form of renewable energy. The aggregate of their
populations is similar to that of Australia. Before the 1970s oil shocks their
dependence on fossil fuels for energy overall was roughly comparable to ours.
Their development of bioenergy since then means that we could draw on their
expertise to provide possible solutions for how we here might proceed to develop
bioenergy using the by-products of our agricultural and the forest industries.
