Overview Industry Overview:

A growing share of consumers is eager for new forms of energy, opening the door for a strong biomass market that is projected to become the largest non-hydroelectric renewable resource of electricity in the United State. Biomass energy encompasses the utilization of wood chips, dried vegetation, crop residue, and other organic products that have little commercial value. One big advantage of biomass is its potential to be carbon-neutral – although burning biomass for energy still releases carbon dioxide, the plants that become the source of biomass capture an equivalent amount through photosynthesis.

Despite its many benefits, the barriers to widespread adoption are substantial, but not insurmountable. Updated technology is needed to improve the economic viability of biomass as a major energy source, and to drive the efficiency of conversion processes. The largest advantage that biomass offers to the alternative energy industry is that it is the most dependable renewable energy source.
