Biopower Industry in China – Analysis & Forecast 2018

Biopower Industry in China – Analysis & Forecast 2018

The Chinese energy industry is still ruled by thermal resources. However, China is making rapid strides to reduce its dependence on fossil fuels and biopower has emerged as a renewable source that is all set to gain importance in the coming years. China has huge reserves of land and a wide variety of biomass feedstock available. There are already some biomass technologies that are well developed and being used widely across the country, while there are others that require a boost from the government in order to encourage their deployment status in the market.

The Chinese State Grid and other companies are pushing for the government to focus more on the development of biomass projects in the coming years.

As of today, biopower accounts for nearly 8% of the entire renewable power generation in China. Total electricity generated from biopower, however, still remains below 1%. Attaining stable prices and ensuring a long-term supply of biomass is the biggest challenge facing the industry in China.

Aruvian Research analyzes the Chinese biopower industry in its in-depth research report Biopower Industry in China – Analysis and Forecast 2018.

Biopower in China – Analysis and Forecast 2018 begins with an introduction to biopower, covering the basics of biopower and how it can be used as an energy source. Conversion technologies such as anaerobic digestion, combustion, gasification, pyrolysis, etc., are touched upon.

We look at the global biopower industry through a brief profile, which includes an industry overview, statistics on the installed capacity of biopower and an analysis of biopower markets in Asia Pacific, North America, and Europe.

The biopower industry in China is analyzed through an industry overview, installed capacity statistics, and electricity generation in the country from biopower feedstock. We also analyze the capital expenditure on biopower in China and the industry investment. Regulatory framework governing the industry are also looked at.
