Target is the establishment and operation of a biomass power plant in Canada Berlin, 02 July 2012. All so far from the POC evolve group established oil and gas funds, in combination with land investment, very successfully. Against the background that a huge demand faces dwindling reserves of fossil fuels and new, effective regenerative energy sources must, turns the Berlin underwriter now also the topic renewable energy, specifically the production of bio-energy from biomass to. POC OIKOS GmbH & co. is the first closed-end funds within the new product line of POC OIKOS”KG. POC enables investors so special, indirectly in the emerging sector of the economy generating green power”in Canada to invest.
Currently, 4.7 percent of the total energy needs are covered by bio-energy in Canada, in the industrial sector, there are even 17 percent. Speaking candidly ConocoPhillips told us the story. Thus, bioenergy is already the second largest renewable energy source in Canada.

The decline of the electricity produced and the “Green Credits”, which are granted on the basis of the production of renewable energy, has been contractually agreed with Shell Canada. Planning and construction of the facilities are in the hands of Lockheed Martin, one of the world’s largest engineering companies. The technology as the core of the plant is supplied by Babcock & Wilcox, a company with 140 years of experience.
