Askersund generates both electricity and heat. The primary fuel source is biofuel in the form of locally purchased forest biomass.

In order to ensure that combustion is as efficient as possible and that emissions are as low as possible, the fuel is quality controlled through spot checks and visits to suppliers.

In 2013, the plant was fuelled around 97 per cent by forest biomass. In order to exploit the biofuel to the full, there is also a flue gas condenser which converts heat from the flue gases into district heating. In very harsh winters, we may be forced to use more oil than normal to ensure that we can supply the heat our customers require.
