Biomass to Power 2018/2019

The leading standard reference in the industry for electricity generation from solid biomass. The updated 9th edition includes:

  • specific data on around 3,700 units in nearly 3,400 biomass power plants with a capacity of over 55 GWel
  • a description and evaluation of more than 1,080 projects worldwide, including essential data such as on who is responsible for the project as well as project status, planned commissioning date and fuel type
  • a worldwide market development forecast 2018-2027 by country, including assessment of new constructions, shutdowns and investment volumes based on over 600 cost examples
  • an analysis of the existing plants by country, e.g. age, feedstock, capacities and competition
  • an analysis of biomass electricity generation subsidisation (feed-in tariffs, quota systems and auctions) by country (for the world’s most important markets)
  • the overview of market factors, fuels, treatment technologies as well as investment and operational costs and revenues (with exemplary calculations)
  • the description and market shares of all important operators and technology providers

In early 2018, there were approximately 3,800 active biomass power plants worldwide, reaching an installed electrical capacity of 60 GWel. In our forecast, we expect around 5,600 BMPPs with a capacity of around 83.3 GWel to be commissioned by the end of 2027. 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.
