Concepts for Energy Production from Grass - A Case Study on the Havelland-region in Germany

P. Sauter, F. Döhling, Y. Lochmann, A. Brosowski & W. Peters
Energy from biomass is increasingly important for the on-demand provisioning of heat and electricity in Germany. To avoid competing uses for food production and ecologically negative effects on the biomass supply, there is a focus on the energetic usage of residues. In this context, concepts for nature-friendly energy utilization of grass and reeds on the example of the Havelland region have been developed. The project focuses on grass from extensively managed grasslands and reeds from...
