Bioenergy is booming. However, the historically developed markets are defined by regional and often personal trading networks. Demand for biomass is currently increasing significantly faster than supply due to huge investments in biomass power plants. High transport costs make new construction especially attractive in locations where fuel supply can be managed locally.
It is therefore especially important to secure long term procurement sources. Biomass trading platforms will contribute to market transparency in future, bringing together supply and demand.
Agricultural companies have new business opportunities due to the convergence of value chains in agriculture and the energy sector. Biomass products and ethanol can be produced in the agricultural industry and then be used by the energy industry to produce power, heat or fuels. The Advisory House advises agricultural businesses in making the best of their energy opportunities.
