Spain can already meet all its energy demand with biomass

The European Day of Bioenergy was set on November 21. That date indicates in the calendar the day from which the Old Continent can satisfy all its energy demand with biomass (from November 21 to the last day of the year). Spain also has a certain delay in this issue, that’s why our D-Day – the Day of Bioenergy in Spain – took place yesterday, December 3rd. The Spanish Association for Biomass Energy Recovery (Avebiom) declares that here we could celebrate this event beforehand if we take advantage of certain residual biomass.
