Jämtland: A County Fuelled by Biomass

Fascinating and well produced piece about the use of biomass and combined heat/power(CHP) to provide 90 percent of the heating needs of this Swedish county. Officials hope to get that figure to 100 percent in the near future. The project is part of a program called Sustainable Energy Europe, a European Commission initiative which aims to contribute to the achievement of the European Union's energy policy targets within the fields of renewable energy sources, energy efficiency, clean transport and alternative fuels.Running time is about 8 minutes.
