What is bioenergy?
Bioenergy is a form of renewable energy that’s generated from burning biomass. Biomass is organic matter like straw, wood chips, and wood pellets. Bioenergy can be used to help meet the demand for renewable energy by producing electricity and district heating.
Sustainable biomass has played a central role in Ørsted’s transformation from a fossil fuel company to a green energy leader, significantly decarbonising the heat and power plants we own and operate in Denmark. Fuelled by sustainable wood pellets, wood chips, and straw, our biomass energy generation saves millions of tonnes of CO2 emissions every year.
