In early 2021, there were about 4,575 active biomass power plants worldwide, reaching an installed electrical capacity of around 74.6 GWel. In our forecast, we expect about 5,825 BMPPs with a capacity of around 93.2 GWel to be commissioned by the end of 2030. 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.
