The Finnish Wood Energy Technology Programme of Tekes, National Technology Agency, focuses on developing technology for the production of forest chips from logging residues and small-sized trees. It is one of the tools of the Ministry of Trade and Industry for substituting renewable sources of energy for fossil fuels in accordance with the Finnish energy and climate strategies. It is aimed to reduce the cost and improve the quality of forest chips. Quality control of wood and bark residues from the forest industries is also included. In July 2002, the Programme consisted of 35 research projects, 35 industrial development projects and 15 industrial demonstration projects. The Programme also participates in international co-operation such as the ALTENER Bioenergy Network-EUBIONET, OPET network (Organization Promoting for Energy Technologies) of EU, and Task 31 (Conventional Forestry Systems for Sustainable Production of Bioenergy) of the IEA Bioenergy Agreement. More information about the Programme in English, approved projects, progress and results is published in magazines, journals, seminar proceedings, this yearbook of the Programme and in the website of Tekes (www.tekes.fi/english/programm/ woodenergy).
