    Abstract

    The Finnish Wood Energy Technology Programme of Tekes, the National Technology Agency, focuses on developing the technology connected to forest chips from logging residues and small-sized trees. The programme is aimed to reduce the costs and to improve the quality of forest chips. The objective of the Wood Energy Technology Programme is to increase the annual use of forest chips to 2.5 million m3 (18 PJ/a) by 2003, that is five-fold in five years. The volume 1.0 million m3 was passed in 2001 and the average price was below 9.0 €/MWh. The total number of projects was 73 in March 2002. Research organizations carried out 32 projects and the industrial enterprices consisted of 29 projects, many of which have research organizations as subcontractors. The number of demonstration projects is 12. The total expenditure for the programme is estimated to be 40 million euros. VTT Processes coordinates the programme.
