Biomass to Power Market Report 2016-2026

Aug 22, 2016, 09:00 ET from Visiongain Ltd

LONDON, August 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Capacity (MW) & CAPEX ($m) Forecasts for Biomass Power in Electricity Generation, Combined Heat and Power (CHP), Biomass-Fired Steam Power Plants, Coal-Fired Plant Conversion to Biomass, High-Efficiency Co-Firing (Direct and Indirect Co-Firing and Parallel Firing); Featuring Direct Combustion, Biomass Burn, Gasification, Pyrolysis, Bubbling Fluidised Bed, Spreader Stoker Units 

Visiongain assesses that CapEx on Biomass-to-Power will reach $5,933 million in 2016. Drivers for the production and use of biomass energy included rapidly rising energy demand in many countries and local and global environmental concerns and goals. Challenges to bioenergy deployment included low fossil fuel prices and rapidly falling energy prices of some other renewable energy sources, especially wind and solar PV. Ongoing debates about the sustainability of bioenergy, including indirect land-use change and carbon balance also affect development in the sector. Given these challenges, national policy frameworks continue to have a large influence on deployment of biomass to power technologies.

Report scope: Resources used for biomass to energy include agricultural residues; animal manure; wood wastes from forestry and industry; residues from food and paper industries; municipal green wastes; sewage sludge; dedicated energy crops such as short-rotation (3-15 years) coppice (eucalyptus, poplar, willow), grasses (miscanthus), sugar crops (sugar cane, beetroot, sorghum), starch crops (corn, wheat) and oil crops (soy, sunflower, oilseed rape, iatropha, palm oil). Organic wastes and residues have been the major biomass sources so far, but energy crops are gaining importance and market share. Residues, wastes and bagasse are primarily used for heat & power generation. Sugar, starch and oil crops are primarily used for fuel production.

The study of biomass to power is the main aim of this report; hence, this report only includes plants that generate at least some electricity from solid biomass. Bio-refineries and anaerobic digesters (AD) are not included in this project, as they use biogas to energy or bio waste AD technologies and cover different aspects of the energy industry. With reference to this report, biomass for energy includes a wide range of materials.

The realities of the economics mean that high-value material for which there is an alternative market, such as good quality large timber, are very unlikely to become available for energy applications. However, there are huge resources of residues, co-products and

waste that exist that could potentially become available at relatively low or even negative costs, where there is currently a requirement to pay for disposal.

This report mainly covers the CAPEX spending on new and upgraded biomass to power plants globally, forecasting this from 2016 to 2026. This report also covers the installed capacity of new and future biomass plants globally in megawatts (MW) throughout the same period of time. This includes direct combustion, advanced thermal and gasification, but not biological processes. In gasification, biomass is pre-treated and then placed in a gasifier with little or no oxygen, and undergoes chemical conversion to produce syngas, which can be burned to produce electricity and/or heating.

Spending is presented in US dollars ($). Spending accounts for capital expenditure of projects, including construction, upgrades and replacement facilities, but not general operational maintenance. In addition, the report includes installed power capacity for operational biomass power plants on a global and regional level, as well as forecasts for the level of capacity these markets will reach until 2026.
