When Dinside wrote about it wood fire cost In 2019, it turns out that a bag of 1,000 liters of wood will provide the equivalent of 1,300 kWh of heat when we consider both the air in the bag and the efficiency of a typical wood stove.

At the same time, they believe that wood burning is essential in terms of emergency preparedness, as many Norwegians have no other alternatives other than using electricity, and because of the capacity of electricity.
As electricity is now priced, wood burning is also the cheapest heating option.
