Job creation with pellets

In Sweden were able to establish the rate of CO2 in 1990, which urged the cost of fossil fuels and helped promote RES. Since then, bioenergy has increased its share in the energy mix to 80% and became the most important energy source in the country accounts for 32% - ahead of petroleum.

That decision also has significant benefits them: while CO2 emissions have decreased by 9%, the country's GDP has increased by 48%. They have increased their exports and ensures that for every TWh produced from biomass are created 300 jobs, mostly in rural areas.

They have achieved with few direct subsidies, says. These have been used to finance start-up processes of new technologies, in order to avoid market distortions.
Löfgren concludes that there is no fuel in the market capable of ensuring medium-term price except the pellet, as shown in the photo.
