In addition to wooden biomass, pellets are one of the main renewable sources of energy used for heating. The interest to use this energy source for heating is growing in Slovenia as well. This is why pellet production can be a good business opportunity for all, who are considering starting or expanding a business in Slovenia.

Pellet production – growing interests for pellets in Slovenia

According to the information to the European Statistical Bureau (Eurostat), the European Union imports most of the pellets from abroad. This is true also for Slovenia despite the increase in domestic pellet production. We import most of the pellets from Romania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and Austria.

Most of Slovenian households still use firewood as a heating source. But the number did decrease in the last years due to raising awareness about energy consumption. Which is why it is not surprising that a fifth of the households think about the transition to a different heating source.

Pellets are environmentally friendly as well as a cheap energy source for heating. They can be used in households as well as in medium-sized and large companies. Handling them is easy, also transport and storage are hassle-free.

The advantage of pellets is also the simple usage in modern furnaces, where you can use them as complementary heating source. If you are thinking of a business idea for Slovenia, pellet production would be a good choice.
