Transportation of primary energy

We have extracted the primary energy. Now it must be transported to where it is to be transformed into more manageable forms of energy (electricity, district heating etc.) or directly used for energy services.

Transport of primary energy

The transport of the primary energy is achieved by:

  • Regionally we transport oil and natural gas in large piping systems
  • Globally, we transport oil and liquefied natural gas in ships
  • Hard coal is typically transported by ship and rail. The market is international
  • You often see the establishment of plants at lignite mines to avoid the expensive transportation of lignite
  • Biomass in the form of wood chips and wood pellets are transported globally via ships and locally via trucks
  • Straw typically transported locally by truck
  • Manure for biogas is transported locally by tractor

Decisions in Energy-Together map

The decision chain for transport of primary energy is generally the same as for the extraction of energy. But the legislative and economic framework for decisions in the chain is of course different. This decision chain is also part of the Energy-Together map.
