Abstract: Biomass application for heating is seen as a major reason for the delayed penetration of the renewable energy sources in the EU. On the other hand, there is a significant unexploited bioheat potential, especially in the 10 new member states of the EU. In the small-scale heat market the reserves are associated with attracting new users and replacing heating with electricity. In the large-scale heat market segment of industrial self-producers of steam bioheating can be implemented in plants, which generate biomass fuels as by-products or residual products from their main activities. In the large-scale heat market segment of distributed heat comsumption, biomass can gain a larger share by covering new demand and/or by replacing coal, including by way of co-firing biomass with coal. Keywords: heat sector, bio-energy strategy, energy market
