Brazil has a large amount of biomass stock available in the country. Last year, Brazil accounted for over 20 billion MWh of power generation through biomass. With its lush green forests spread over 6.3 million hectares of land which basically consists of pine and eucalyptus has set Brazil with abundance in biomass feedstock. Hydroelectric power and natural gas dominate Brazil’s electricity generation capacity.

Brazil’s total installed renewable power capacity was 14GW in 2011, including the key renewable sectors being ethanol, biomass and small hydroelectric power leading the country’s renewable power supply. Historically, hydroelectric power has dominated Brazil’s electricity supply, with more than 80% of electricity being fed into the grid.

Brazil’s most abundant biomass feedstock is sugarcane, which makes cogeneration the most viable biomass technology for installation across the country. Brazil has abundant forest residues, which can be used as a source for electricity generation in Brazil. Currently, the majority of Brazil’s sugarcane is grown in the north east region around Sao Paulo. The surplus electricity generated from the READ MORE >
