Read some of the conclusions here:
* Conversion from coal to wood biomass has a positive effect on CO2 emissions after an average of six years.
* Conversion from natural gas to wood biomass has in most cases taken between 9 and 22 years and in some cases 37 years before it resulted in reduced CO2 emissions.
* Seen over 30 years, which is the life expectancy of a combined heat and power plant, the conversion from coal to wood biomass gives a reduction of between 15 and 71 percent.
* Conversion from natural gas to biomass gives a reduction of between -4 and 19 percent over 30 years.
In Denmark, the energy supply is responsible for more than 20 percent of our CO2 emissions.
