This presentation provides information on grid-connected biomass power generation systems, including direct and biogas combustion technologies. Policies discussed include feed-in tariffs and renewable energy mandates. The key point made is that biopower can better compete with other forms of energy when all externalities are included in the calculation, such as the negative impact from emissions and positive impacts of avoiding waste disposal or burning of crop residue.
