Iceland can be highlighted as an example of development of bioenergy from forest. Iceland has enormous geothermal heat reserves and a lot of hydropower. Iceland can be said to be the most developed country when we are talking about use of Renewable energy. More than 80 % of total energy consumption is based on renewable energy. The electricity price is Iceland is the lowest in whole Europe which make the use of biomass challenging. Still, wood energy can be an option. The BioPAD project participated in a study tour of the forest supply chain in Iceland.
