1 Energy Potential of Serbia’ s Forests Comparative and ‘Linguistic’ Analysis By Gregory Krupnikovs, Rika Biofuels Ltd. Belgrade, September 8, 2010

2 Serbia and Latvia compared IndicatorsLatvia*Serbia Area, sq. km64,00077,000 Forests, Ha3,000, ,000 Public ownership, %5653 Annual increment, mio cbm169 Fuel wood, Mtoe1,111,15 Population, mio2,37,5 *It is importnat to note that unlike Serbia, Latvia over the past 15 years has experienced a massive influx of Scandinavian companies into forest, wood- processing and pellet-production industries and markets.

3 A Bit of Linguistics: Energy Calorific value Which energy – heat or electricity? Which heat – domestic, district heating boilers, small CHPs, large CHPs? Efficiency

4 A Bit of Linguistics: Potential Total volume of felled wood Total volume of logging residues Total volume of processing residues Economically collectable volume of residues Social aspects – household consumption

5 More on Household Consumption 675,286 households using wood-based energy Overall consumption 5,5 mio cbm of firewood Average price: EUR 30/cbm NB: A discrepancy in figures? Potential wood harvest is 4,6 mio cbm, whereas firewood-only consumption is estimated at 5,5mio cbm.

6 More of Linguistics: Forests Sustainably and well managed forests (Serbia already has a FSC certificate) Improved assortment of species A million-dollar question: Are energy crop plantations forests? –Salixyes –Poplaryes –Miscanthus ???

7 A few words about pellets Why pellets? Pellets for export Are pellets good for internal market? Woodchips for local boilers and CHPs.

8 How to calculate potential? Sustainability of forest management Net financial results Social aspects Export/import balance Improvement possibilities for households

9 Thank you for your attention!
