Abstract:
The paper shows research results for the consumption of wood energy and its contribution to meet the 2020 renewable energy target for Bosnia and Herzegovina. Complex methodological approach was used for conducting the research, which required field research. The research was conducted in the period between March 15th and April 22nd 2016 including 8,500 households in 109 cities/municipalities in the entire Bosnia and Herzegovina, 1,759 commercial buildings, 922 public buildings, 12 district heating systems, 86 companies from wood industry and 94 wood fuel producers. Research results show that in 2015 total value of wood energy available for final consumption at the level of Bosnia and Herzegovina was 54.5 thousand TJ or 1.29 mtoe. Among this, 735.8 TJ was spent for non-energy purposes, and 53.85 TJ or 1.28 mtoe for energy purposes. The most important category of wood fuel users are households, 51 563.5 TJ or about 96% of total final consumption. Other sectors, which include facilities of public importance, commercial buildings and industry, use about 4% of the final energy consumption. The results of the energy balance of wood energy in 2015 show that wood energy plays the crucial role in achieving the national target for 2020.
