ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the vision of Dong Energy A/S to facilitate fossil-to-biomass fuel conversion by developing a mixture with more renewables than fossil, which will yield lesser carbon dioxide (CO2) output. It mentions the advantage of such practice on the tax enforced on both fossil- and biomass-generated heat. Tables showing the foreseen changes in the operation of various power plants, such as Avedøre 1 and 2, Studstrup 3, and Skærbæk 3, are presented.
