The market for biomass power plants continues to boom. Between 2007 and 2011, more than 750 biomass power plants with a capacity of over 8,200 MWel went operational – more than ever before. This growth will even accelerate in the years to come. Approximately another 820 power plants with a capacity of 12,500 MWel will be commissioned by 2016.

The internationally increasing subsidisation of renewable energies is the main reason for this growth. Biomass has a special status among the renewable energies as generating energy from biomass follows the demand – contrary to the energetic use of sun, wind and water.

The third edition of our study analyses the worldwide market for electricity generation from solid biomass. We have elaborated it in cooperation with energy agencies, public authorities and associations as well as with operators and plant manufacturers from the segment of electricity generation from biomass.

The analyst version of the report "The World Market for Biomass Power Plants" includes:• A detailed analysis of all essential political, economic, managerial and technical trends in the construction and operation of biomass power plants.• A concrete differentiation of the current and future market volumes by country up to and including 2016, based on a transparent and comprehensible methodology.• An overview on projects, including more than 870 new construction projects, of which more than 260 are currently under construction, more than 100 were approved and more than 500 are being planned or discussed.• A description and analysis of the most important operators and plant manufacturers of biomass power plants throughout the world.Preface for the analyst version 11Preface 12Management summary 141 Background 181.1 Differentiation 181.2 Fuels 201.3 Reasons for incinerating biomass 231.4 Political promotion of electricity generation from biomass 251.5 Ecological critique of electricity generation from biomass 252 Technology 272.1 Delivery and processing of the fuel 272.2 Combustion 292.3 Energy generation 322.4 Flue gas cleaning 333 Costs and revenues of biomass power plants 353.1 Investment costs 353.2 Current costs 383.3 Revenues 404 Market factors throughout the world 434.1 Biomass potential 434.2 CO2 certificate trading 454.3 Feed-in tariffs 495 The worldwide market for biomass power plants 585.1 Current Plants 585.2 Market development 606 Operators, producers, market shares 726.1 Operators 726.2 Technology producers and market shares 757 National markets 857.1 Australia 857.2 Austria 897.3 Belgium 947.4 Brazil 997.5 Bulgaria 1057.6 Canada 1087.7 China 1147.8 Croatia 1217.9 Czech Republic 1247.10 Denmark 1287.11 Estonia 1327.12 Finland 1357.13 France 1427.14 Germany 1477.15 Hungary 1547.16 India 1587.17 Ireland 1667.18 Italy 1707.19 Japan 1777.20 Latvia 1817.21 Lithuania 1857.22 Mexico 1887.23 Netherlands 1917.24 Norway 1967.25 Poland 1997.26 Portugal 2057.27 Romania 2097.28 Russia 2137.29 Serbia 2177.30 Slovakia 2207.31 Slovenia 2237.32 Spain 2267.33 Sweden 2337.34 Switzerland 2387.35 Ukraine 2437.36 United Kingdom 2477.37 Uruguay 2547.38 USA 2587.39 Other countries 268Data origin and methodology 274Glossary 277
