Experience in the demo region of Kaunas (Lithuania)

Jan 20, 2014

Bioenergy activity in the Kaunas demo region is funded by targeted EU structural funds and national programmes, and is driven by the initiative of district heating companies. Approx. 85 MW of bioenergy capacities have been installed in the region since 2010. Wood fuel is mainly used in households as the cheapest type of fuel, not only in Kaunas region, but in Lithuania as a whole. Further installation of large capacity wood-burning boilers in the DH sector would raise the price of firewood. This is unacceptable from social point of view because the purchasing power of the population is low, especially in the countryside.
