Biopower in the US – The Road Ahead
A wide range of biomass sources are used to produce Biopower in a variety of forms. For instance, food, fiber and wood process residues from the industrial sector; energy and short rotation crops as well as agricultural wastes from the agricultural sector, and forest residues, agro forest residues and short rotation coppice from the forestry sector can all be utilized to generate electricity, heat, combined heat and power, and other forms of Biopower. Traditional biomass sources including fuel wood, charcoal and animal dung. Governments worldwide are investing heavily in Biopower technologies to increase their energy security and reduce the fossil-fuel carbon emissions and pollution. Bioenergy accounts for around 10-11% of the world’s total primary energy supply, most of which is used in the residential sector (for heating and cooking) and is produced locally. It is estimated that around 97% of Biofuels are made of solid biomass, 71% of which is used in the residential sector. The worldwide cumulative Biopower production capacity stands at around 50 GW. The major countries involved in bio-power production worldwide include the US, Brazil, Finland and France.
