Biomass Market Analysis

The UK’s purpose of renewable energy sources is low in comparison to most other European Member States. As a capacity of total energy use, the contribution from renewable authority was 1.5% in 2005 though this had doubled to 3% in 2009. The 2009 Wind Energy Directive sets a target for the UK to achieve 15% of its energy consumption from renewable sources by 2020.The UK NREAP advise that the 15% target could be reached by achieving contributions from renewables in three essential sectors of around 30% of electricity demand, including 2% from small-scale sources, 12% of heat demand, 10% of transport demand. In 2010, 72% of the pellet manufacturing capacity in Canada was utilised, and 94% of generation, 1.4 million tonnes, was exported, of which 90% to Europe.

Over the years to come, biomass will grow within the biopower, biofuels, and bioproduct sectors. About 70% of all biomass in the world is used in the residential sector, while 14% is used in industry and 11% is transformed into electricity, heat, or another energy carrier such as liquid fuel or biogas.
