Drax Reports Renewable Capacity Triumph Over Fossil Fuels

New research from energy company Drax Power revealed that total capacity available from UK renewables has overtaken fossil fuels for the first time, which includes biomass’ contribution of 3.2GW. The promising results are according to Drax’s Electric Insight Report, which was produced independently by researchers from Imperial College London. The report also looks at why […]

IEA Predicts “Biggest Growth” In Bioenergy Renewables By 2023

The International Energy Agency’s (IEA) current market forecast has predicted that modern bioenergy will have the biggest growth in renewable resources between 2018 and 2023. According to the IEA’s market analysis and forecast report, renewables are to continue increasing over the next 5 years and will be covering 40% of global energy consumption growth. They […]

U.S. EIA Forecasts Increase In Biomass Electricity Generation Capacity

The August edition of the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s (EIA) Short-Term Energy Outlook has been published, revealing forecasts on renewables consumption in the U.S. Biomass generating capacity for the electric power sector is expected to hit 7,363 megawatts by the end of 2018, up from 7,313 megawatts in the previous year. The projected figure for […]

Rhode Island Biomass Bill Stalls In General Assembly

A Rhode Island bill that could have cleared the way for biomass power plants won’t move forward this legislative session. Biomass is wood waste that is burned to generate electricity. It’s also considered a renewable resource. The bill would have included biomass in the state’s “net-metering” program, which gives credits to customers for extra power […]

Burning Question: Is Woody Biomass The 21st Century Fuel?

For hundreds of millennia, humans have depended on wood as a basic but reliable source of fuel. Today efforts to grow that dependence in the face of an evolving energy landscape are widespread. But they’re also contentious. The debate over biomass, an umbrella term that encompasses a range of organic materials used for energy, rests […]

Why Biomass Remains A Challenge, Even In Timber-Rich Georgia

A new biomass plant under construction in Georgia highlights the challenging economics of the technology, even in a state so rich in forestry waste it exports it to other countries. The 50 MW Albany Green plant – the largest renewable energy project in the state so far – is a unique collaboration among Georgia Power, […]

Renewable Energy Industries Employ 8 Million+

From: Wood Bioenergy Editors More than 8 million are employed in renewable energy industries worldwide, and that number rises to 9.8 million if large-scale hydropower projects are included, according to a recent report from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), Renewable Energy and Jobs – Annual Review 2017. Officials with IRENA note the figures show […]

UW Madison Researchers Develop New Approach Combining Biomass, Solar Energy

In a study published March 9 in Nature Chemistry, University of Wisconsin-Madison chemistry Professor Kyoung-Shin Choi presents a new approach to combine solar energy conversion and biomass conversion, two important research areas for renewable energy. For decades, scientists have been working to harness the energy from sunlight to drive chemical reactions to form fuels such […]
