    Biomass power generation is a source of power generation from carbon contained in the waste of various human and natural activities. This waste is derived from various sources, including the by-products from the Timber industry, as well as from sugarcane crops, woody plants, agricultural residue, oil-rich algae, and the organic part of municipal and industrial waste. Power generation using biomass is increasing. Recovering energy from garbage has developed over the years from the simple incinera......
  • China Renewables Report Q3 2014
    Published: 16-Jul-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 52
    BMI View: We have broadly maintained our forecasts for non-hydropower renewable energy in China for this quarter, following our previous upwards revision in Q214. That said, we maintain a positive outlook on the sector, as Beijing's emphasis on cutting pollution levels across the country, along with strong growth in energy demand, will continue to set the tone for robust investment in renewable energy from both the public and private sectors. The key risk to this outlook continues to stem fr......

    BMI View: We are maintaining our short- and long-term forecasts for the non-hydropower renewables energy sector in France this quarter, as our assumptions remain relevant. The government's position on nuclear energy continues to be relatively ambiguous, and we have seen signs that President François Hollande might backtrack on his promise to reduce the share of nuclear energy to 50% by 2025. This has been our core view from the start, and the possible decommissioning of reactors and continued r......

We are also maintaining our positive long-term outlook for the sector as thermal generation continues to face numerous difficulties and government support for the sector remains strong. However, the victory of Narendra Modi in the 2014 general elections poses an upside risk to both our short- and long-term forecasts as Modi ......
  • Italy Renewables Report Q3 2014

    BMI View: We are forecasting non-hydropower renewable generation in Italy to grow by 4.0% in 2014, which is significantly lower than the five-year historical average. We attribute this slowdown to the government's decision to stop granting feed-in tariffs (FiTs) for new solar installations starting from July 2013, and the limited availability of FiTs available for wind energy. We have also maintained our long-term forecasts for the Italian renewable energy sector this quarter, and expect growth ......
