Major players in the biomass electricity market are Enviva, Pinnacle Renewable Energy Group, Pacific BioEnergy Corporation, Acciona Sa, Dong Energy A/S, Acciona Sa, Ameresco Inc., E.On Se, Graanul Invest Group and RWE Innogy.
The global biomass electricity market is expected to grow from $33.11 in billion 2020 to $35.43 billion in 2021 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7%. The growth is mainly due to the companies rearranging their operations and recovering from the COVID-19 impact, which had earlier led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of commercial activities that resulted in operational challenges. The market is expected to reach $50.26 billion in 2025 at a CAGR of 9%.
The biomass electric power generation market consists of sales of electricity generated using biomass and related services for household and commercial purposes.Biomass gasification refers to a process that involves the burning of biomass for the generation of producer gas or syngas for production of electricity.
Producer gas is a combustible gas mixture of carbon monoxide, hydrogen, carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrogen. The gasification process uses heat, pressure and partial combustion which takes place when the air supply (o2) is inadequate for the combustion of biomass.
The biomass electric power generation market covered in this report is segmented by feedstock: solid biomass, biogas, municipal solid waste, liquid biomass and by end-user: households, industrial sector, government sectors, others. It is also segmented by technology: anaerobic digestion, combustion, co-Firing, gasification, landfill gas.
In 2019, Prospect Co., Ltd., a Japanese seller of condominiums and owner of few solar power generation facilities, acquired an aggregate of 18,000 common shares of Pinnacle Renewable Energy Inc. Through the acquisition, Prospect owns and controls an aggregate of 3,348,600 Common Shares and plans to use the acquired common shares for further investment strategy. Pinnacle Renewable Energy Inc. is a Canada based manufacturer and distributor of industrial wood pellets, which are used by large-scale thermal power generators as to produce reliable baseload renewable power.
The growing competition from alternative energy sources such as solar, wind, geothermal is expected to limit the biomass electric power generation market.Unlike, wind power plants, biogas plants are affected by cold climates.
The digesters in a biogas plant requires heat energy to maintain a constant biogas supply. The optimal temperature for bacteria to digest the waste product is around 37°C.In temperatures below 37°C, the digesters require additional heat energy to maintain a constant biogas supply. Also, the solar and wind energy plants use raw resources which are available in abundance whereas biogas production is only possible in rural areas where raw materials such as agricultural waste, manure, green waste or food waste are in constant supply. Thus, the popularity and ease of maintaining alternative energy sources such as solar, wind, geothermal restraints the growth of the biomass electric power generation market.
The companies in the biomass electric power generation market are developing new methods to produce electric power through new hybrid biogas plants by combining biogas with other forms of renewable energy sources such as solar energy.The combination of solar energy with biogas reduces the operating cost and efforts required to deal with the waste products from the farms.
Following the trend, U.K based Bioplex and Controllis, in 2019, together developed an onsite-electric power generator system including a high output system to convert grass, animal and food waste into biogas, biogas powered 12kW DC Genset generator, solar power arrays, battery bank and 75kW AC Mains Inverters. This onsite-electric power generator system also provides cloud-based remote management and data analytics to optimize system performance. The system generates electricity more efficiently than conventional biogas power plants as the production of electricity is supported by solar energy when biogas is not available. The generation of electric power by using a mix of solar power and biogas forms the latest trend in the biomass electric power generation market.
The increasing government support through various government subsidies and policies drives the growth of the biomass electric power generation market.Due to the growing concerns about climate change and rising levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere resulting from the burning of fossil fuels such as coal and oil, new government policies are being framed to encourage sustainable power generation.
For instance, In India, the Ministry of new and renewable energy under its National Biogas and Manure Management Programme (NBMMP) provides subsidies for setting up a family type biogas plants mainly for rural and semi-urban/households. The programme is implemented by the State Nodal Departments/State Nodal Agencies and Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC), Biogas Development and Training Centers (BDTCs) and involves subsidies up to Rs.17,000 ($230) for setting up biogas plants.
