  • Economic Factors

    The commercial viability of biomass energy highlights some common factors. There is a positive picture emerging in relation to investments. According to the Global Status Report, worldwide investment in renewable energy is growing fast. A brief outline of major factors to encourage the growth of biomass businesses are examined in this chapter. The chapter explains the basic steps which help to understand the principles of the establishment and the growth of a biomass energy business. Developing highly efficient supply chains for biomass fuel is vital for the success of a biomass energy business. However, the supply chain is not yet fully developed in most countries across the world. Product demand is a yardstick for the success or failure of the biomass fuel production industry and for its future implications. The economic advantages when using Super Fuel sample (SFS) as a biomass fuel are listed in the chapter.

  • Conclusion

    This book has examined in detail the selection process of biomass materials for the purpose of using them as a source of a fuel. This concluding chapter of the book provides an outline on the application of REA1 methodology, and the importance of biomass as a source of renewable energy. A number of businessmen, engineers, researchers, and technicians still believe that there is not enough support at the present time for co-firing methods and for the bio-fuels industries in general. The super fuel sample (SFS) fulfills certain factors such as price, quality, and availability, storage, which the majority of biofuels available on the market cannot provide. Depending on the type of technology used and the type of biomass materials, the cost of producing energy from biomass materials can vary.

  • Methodology: Part 2

    Scientific and technical factors (S&T;) factors have been designed to help in meeting the standard for a new biomass fuel, as required by power generating companies. In this chapter, the methodology section of S&T; factors has been examined and analyzed in order to test the accuracy of their values. The energy factor (EF), combustion index factor (CIF), volatile matter factor (VMF), moisture factor (MF), ash factor (AF), density factor (DF), and nitrogen emission factor (NEF) form the backbone of the S&T; section of REA1 methodology. The chapter discusses evaluation of these factors in detail, and lists the different allocation methods used in a variety of field systems.

  • Methodology: Part 3

    Important factors need to be examined and applied to the selection of a commercial biomass fuel, using nine main business factors (BFs) and their subfactors. By obtaining the correct values for BFs and applying them through the renewable energy analyser one (REA1) methodology, a clear picture emerges, indicating how a biomass energy business can be established and run successfully. The nine BFs discussed in this chapter are: system factor (SF), approach factor (AF), baseline methodology factor (BMF), business viability factor (BVF), applicability factor (APF), land and water issues factor (LWIF), supply factor (SUF), quality factor (QF), and emission factor. The chapter examines in detail these factors in the form of evaluations, subjectivity/objectivity, percentage allocation, priority listing, and other related commercial aspects. The BFs are analyzed under various circumstances, that is, examined for their practicalities, tested by the REA1 methodology, and researched via survey.

  • Electricity Market under a Future Grid

    Growing penetration of renewable energy technologies, development of smart grid including microgrid, electric vehicles, advanced energy storage system and smart sensors, growing number of distributed energy resources (DERs), such as smaller‐scale generators, microturbines, and fuel cells, connected to the distribution system, are some of the emerging developments in the power grid. Some electricity markets are already dealing with, or are in the process of dealing with such emerging issues. This chapter describes these emerging issues and their potential impact on current electricity markets. Generally, renewable energy sources (RES) include solar electric, solar thermal, wind, hydroelectric power, geothermal, ocean current, or wave energy resource. There are two main forms of subsidies applied to renewable energy generation; the Feed‐in Tariff and the Renewable Portfolio Standards. The chapter discusses the demand response (DR) issues in three different domains: generation, distribution, and consumers.

  • Results: Part 1

    Statistical data have been collected, which through analysis, have been processed into facts. These facts are the foundation for a ?>knowledge?> base, which is the main objective for original research and applications in any statistical approach. For this reason, a process is needed to develop business (BF) and scientific and technical (S&T;) factors through the application of a methodology. From the analysis provided in this chapter, it has been concluded that the S&T; section of a methodology may contain the lowest percentage of errors. In contrast, the BF section is more complex when it comes to the exact percentage of error. The REA1 methodology error is relatively small and falls within an expected standard error in any scientific/methodological research or corrective procedure. The standard deviation (SD) figure of 5% (with a population SD of 3.5%) means that the relative error of the REA1 methodology is close to 16%.

  • Results: Part 2

    Biomass data obtained through the application of the methodology showed potential for a newly designed selection process for the most suitable (best) biomass samples. This chapter focuses on data and results obtained by the application of the methodology. It examines the heating values using results obtained via the application of renewable energy analyser one (REA1) methodology. The chapter describes experimental tests that are used to obtain data related to the values of each scientific and technical (S&T;) factor for every sample. It presents examples of biomass S&T; methodology and reports related to coal and the 15-biomass samples. According to the results obtained by the application of the methodology REA1, the top most suitable biomass samples according to S&T; are provided in the chapter. The chapter provides percentage values of biomass samples compared with coal in a ratio of 50% business fitness (BF) and 50% S&T.;

  • Methodology: Part 1

    The process of selecting a workable commercial biomass fuel is nothing but gradual steps of testing and refining procedures; part of the procedure involved is the creation and implementation of a new methodology. The methodology's main focus is to find biomass materials with the highest output of energy that are readily available at a low cost, that is, the correct selection process is one of the main parts of the methodology. A renewable energy source project/business (biomass) is made up from three important parts that make up a pyramid: environmental issues and main sources of energy, scientific and technical issues, and business issues. The decision tree approach can shed light on areas of biomass energy prospects, which may be missed with other approaches. The chapter outlines the methodology terms and definitions for scientific and technical (S&T;)/business factors (BF), the scoring system for REA1 methodology, and the survey method.

  • Samples

    For the biomass sampling discussed in this chapter, a number of biomass samples have been chosen for their energy content and for a variety of other factors - ?>plant growth,?> ?>cost,?> ?>availability,?> ?>ease of production,?> and environmental issues. These samples are presented and discussed in the chapter, mainly for the purpose of building a concept and an outline prior to the construction of REA1 methodology. The discussion and examination of each sample is listed under four different headlines: general introduction, characteristics, composition, and suitability as a fuel. The samples discussed are corn, wheat, miscanthus, rice, barley, sunflower, Niger seed, and rapeseed.

  • Co-Firing Issues

    In order to find a suitable solution to biomass energy technical and engineering issues, while at the same time reducing costs and creating better efficiency, particularly concerning the technical aspects, biomass properties to be analyzed objectively and adjusted accordingly. Problems that should be considered concerning biomass materials used as a viable fuel can range from hardware engineering issues (biomass milling, fuels mixing, combustion, and by-products) to access to unwanted chemicals in the fuels themselves. Hardware degradation is a major problem when using biomass materials for co-firing with coal. When the biomass materials selected for usage have been already examined and tested thoroughly, an environmentally friendly and economically sound co- firing method can be achieved from both a scientific/technical and commercial standpoint.
