Wood pellets are a very versatile fuel. They offer a sustainable and cost-effective solution in producing heat, electricity or indeed both (in a combined heat and power unit). Pellets are therefore able to contribute to the energy transition and the decarbonisation of Europe in a number of different ways.
Today, the EU28 is producing nearly 17 million tonnes (corresponding to about 7 Mtoe) of pellets, showing a growth of nearly 10% in 2018 compared to that of 2017.
