By 2025, We Expect There to be approximately 5,700 Power Plants With a Capacity of About 74 GW

This study is the world’s largest of its kind. It is the standard work of the industry for electricity generation from solid biomass.

The 7th updated edition includes:

  • Worldwide market development forecast 2016-2025 by country, including assessment of new constructions, shutdowns and investment volumes based on over 500 cost examples. Analysis of the existing plants by country, e.g. age, feedstock, capacities and competition.
  • Analysis of biomass electricity generation subsidisation (feed-in tariffs, quota systems and auctions) by country (for the world’s most important markets).
  • Overview of market factors, fuels, treatment technologies as well as investment and operational costs and revenues (with exemplary calculations).
  • Description and market shares of all important operators and technology providers.

In late 2016, there were approximately 3,600 active biomass power plants (without co-incinerators) throughout the world. They had an electricity generation capacity of approximately 51 GW. By 2025, we expect these figures to increase to around 5,700 power plants with a capacity of about 74 GW. 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.
