Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The Biomass Power industry has grown at a healthy rate in the five years to 2014. The industry's expansion has been propelled in part by several federal renewable energy tax credits that encouraged the use of biomass power. In the coming years, the continued economic recovery will spur growth in manufacturing and industrial production sectors, increasing the level of electricity consumption and translating to higher demand for biomass power.... purchase to read more

Industry Report - Industry Products Chapter

The Biomass Power industry essentially provides one product, which is electricity. However, that energy can be derived from different products in different ways. According to the Energy Information Administration, there are three main sources of biomass fuel used by the industry to create energy; wood and wood waste (used in 54.0% of biomass fuel production), liquid biofuels (34.0%) and other biomass (12.0%). Liquid biofuels include alcohols (ethanol) and biodiesel, a fuel often made from grains and animal fats. The other biomass segment includes municipal waste from biogenic sources, landfill gas, and other non-wood waste. To convert these different biomass sources into energy, facilities can use one of three types of systems; direct-fired, cofired and gasification... purchase to read more
