The report gathers data on biomass and waste power generation across the top ten countries leading the market for biomass. The report covers the key players, key feedstock available, and the prominent biomass power technology installed in each of the 10 countries – the US, Germany, Brazil, the UK, Sweden, Finland, Italy, China, India, and Australia.

This report examines the emerging factors driving the growth of the biomass power market, as the use of biomass for electricity generation slowly becomes widespread globally, led by government support. This study found approximately 1.4bn people globally lack access to electricity. From the point of view of electricity supply, the pressures of a rapidly increasing population, rising concern of global warming, and the need to achieve national energy security is driving an unprecedented interest in exploring renewable power resources including wind, solar, hydroelectric, geothermal, marine power as well as biomass for achieving a low carbon electricity mix by both the governments and electricity utilities.

The report highlights how parts of North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific are using biomass feedstock, in a bid to increase the total electricity supply. Similar to any renewable resource, the demand for biomass for electricity generation is driven by government legislation and regulations, encouraging the growth of biomass feedstock for electricity generation. Further, the report examines how biomass feedstock suppliers and utilities in the biomass market are learning to combat rising transportation costs associated with gathering feedstocks and transporting the feedstock to the electricity generation sites, through development of cost effective biomass power technologies.

Globally the term bioenergy is used to describe biomass, biogas, and biofuels. Bioenergy is used to generate electricity, produce heat, and power vehicles. This report focuses on the emerging trends in the biomass market for electricity generation only. The term biomass can refer to any material derived from recently living organisms, which includes plants, animals and their byproducts. Based on the findings, the report considers renewable energy to include all renewable energy sources other than traditional biomass. The term traditional biomass refers to the level of biomass consumption in the residential sector in developing countries and refers to the use of wood, charcoal, agricultural residues, and animal dung for cooking and heating.

Key features of this report
Identification of the ten most promising countries in the biomass power market and highlights how various geographic markets are expanding their share in the total electricity supply mix using biomass feedstock for electricity generation.

Five-year assessment of the latest biomass and waste power generation and installed biomass capacity.

Electricity market trends and legislation are being influenced by availability of biomass feedstock

List of major key players of biomass renewable energy

Information on government policy framework in renewables energy and biomass power for supporting the biomass market

Identification of biomass energy development and potential resource globally and in major countries in the future

Analysis across countries with abundant feedstock availability including India, Germany, and the UK – biomass feedstock production is led by fertilizer price pressures, in addition to competition for available land and water resources.
