Good prediction on Biomass
The U.S. Energy Information Administration has released the March edition of its Short-Term Energy Outlook, predicting that non-hydropower renewables will provide 10 percent of U.S. electricity generation in 2018 and nearly 11 percent in 2019, up from less than 10 percent in 2017. Wood biomass is expected to be used to generate 120,000 MWh per day of electricity this year, increasing to 121,000 MWh per day next year. Waste biomass is expected to be used to generate 59,000 MWh per day of electricity this year, increasing to 60,000 MWh per day next year. The electric power sector is expected to consume 0.283 quadrillion Btu (quad) of waste biomass in 2018, increasing to 0.287 quad in 2019. The sector is also expected to consume 0.251 quad of wood biomass this year, increasing to 0.261 quad next year. The EIA predicts the industrial sector will consume 0.164 quad of waste biomass in both 2018 and 2019. The sector is also expected to consume 1.408 quad of wood biomass this year, falling to 1.395 quad next year. Source article: biomassmagazine.com
