In early 2019, there were nearly 4,000 active biomass power plants worldwide, reaching an installed electrical capacity of around 67.7 GWel. In our forecast, we expect about 5,550 BMPPs with a capacity of around 89.4 GWel to be commissioned by the end of 2028. The subsidisation of renewable energies and the development of domestic energy sources from existing waste material, e.g. wood waste or bagasse, are the most important reasons for this growth.
