Apr. 1, 2011, Dublin, Ireland – Research
and Markets has added report "The use of biomass
for power generation in the U.S. – 5th edition
" to its offerings. The
report is a 65-page overview of the renewed U.S. market interest in
biomass-fuelled power generation.

Renewable portfolio standards, the threat
of carbon reduction mandates, and customer desire for more environmentally
sound energy sources are all driving utilities to take a hard look at using
renewable energy to meet their electric supply requirements. While both wind
and solar power have been growing rapidly, suitable resources do not exist in
all locales, and costs for solar power are extremely high. However, biomass
resources are widely available, and in many cases, can be used cost-effectively
to generate electricity. The report provides a concise look at what's driving
interest in biomass-fuelled generation, the challenges faced in implementing
biomass-fuelled generation projects, and the current and future state of
biomass-fuelled generation.

Topics covered in the report include:

  • An overview of biomass-fuelled generation,
    including its history, current market environment, and future prospects;
  • An analysis of the key business factors
    that are driving renewed interest in biomass-fuelled power generation;
  • An evaluation of the challenges that are
    hindering the implementation of biomass-fuelled generation projects;
  • A description of the various feedstocks that can be used for biomass-fuelled generation;
  • An evaluation of the biomass supply chain;
  • A description of biomass-fuelled generation technologies;
  • A review of the economic drivers of biomass-fuelled generation project success.
