Study on Biomass Supply and “Green Energy Accounting”
In 2012 KT-Energy developed the Study on Biomass Supply and “Green” Energy Accounting in Ukraine for one of the major European utility companies.
The scope of the study covered the investigation of biomass market and methods of “green energy” accounting and tariff formation for partial substitution of coal by biomass.
The report developed within the project included the analysis of available biomass sources (wood biomass, sunflower seed husks, reed biomass), which could be used for pellet production, analysis of current status and development perspectives of Ukrainian pellet market, as well as the economic analysis of the feasibility of pellet production projects in Ukraine.
Besides, the report evaluates logistic issues of pellets production projects development: the analysis of possible biomass and pellets transportation modes and the analysis of transportation cost using different transportation options.
