Novel agricultural and municipal waste digesters are being combined with the solid oxide fuel cell technology to deploy reliable and renewable power sources to customers. Such technological advancements are powering growth of the India biomass market, which is estimated to reach a value of ~US$ 4 Bn by the end of 2030. Renewable power generation using biomass has significantly reduced methane emissions, which is relatively more harmful to the atmosphere as compared to CO2 emissions.

Storage of Biomass Plays Instrumental Role for Maintaining Strong Supply Chains

Customers in the India biomass market are assured continuous energy flow through biomass energy generation, unlike wind and solar energy, which is subject to energy fluctuations. However, poor supply chains are some of the biggest hurdles that are inhibiting market growth. This can be attributed to biomass availability is not certain during the year. For instance, biomass from agriculture is available only after the harvesting period, which indicates that the raw material can only last up to a few months. Hence, companies in the India biomass market are procuring and storing the required volume of biomass to avoid supply chain fluctuations.

Among all agriculture-intensive states in India, companies in Uttar Pradesh are utilizing their biomass up to its full potential, due to the abundance of sugarcane industries. The India biomass market is flourishing due to increased availability of co-generation power plants in North Indian states, where the market is estimated to expand at a CAGR of ~8% during the forecast period.

Nationwide Lockdown Curtails Energy Generation Activities Until Coronavirus Pandemic Lasts

The Punjab State Transmission Corporation Limited (PSTCL) has recently announced the cutback of renewable power generation until coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak subsides. The Government is imposing the force majeure clause for renewable energy generators since continuation power generation could significantly impact supply chains. Apart from business activities in the India biomass market, other industries related to biomass generation are also experiencing a curtailment in various business processes. Moreover, lack of free flow in public transport is another restraining factor that has caused a major slowdown in the market landscape.

Apart from biomass, energy generators of solar and wind have also been forced to shut down their business activities. Cogen power, biogas, and mini hydel projects are experiencing a halt in revenue generation. As such, energy generators are positively responding to regulations issues under the nationwide lockdown.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

The India biomass market is undergoing a slight downtrend, as state governments have issued a curtailment on renewable energy generation activities until the COVID-19 outbreak subsides. Foreign green energy companies are eyeing opportunities in India’s flourishing industrial sector to establish clean energy ecosystems in Indian organizations.

New schemes supporting biomass cogeneration projects are generating incremental opportunities for renewable energy generators. However, many agriculture-intensive states, such as Maharashtra, Karnataka, and Andhra Pradesh are underutilizing the potential of the biomass energy. Hence, companies should focus their investments in North Indian states such as Uttar Pradesh and Punjab where companies can tap opportunities due to the abundance of sugarcane industries and co-generation power plants.

India Biomass Market: Overview

  • Biomass is used as feedstock in the production of energy. Biomass is also employed as fuel in the transport sector. It is derived through biological processes. Biomass is environmentally-friendly and can replace exhaustible sources of energy.
  • Of late, the biomass industry has gained significant traction as a key renewable energy in the global energy mix. Biomass, which is generated or extracted from forestry, biogenic, and agricultural waste, is used to produce fuels. Improvement in economics of energy production of biomass has radically boosted its potential as a fuel among several end-user industries. Demand for biomass is expected to increase in the near future, as it is environment-friendly.

Increase in Demand for Renewable Energy to Drive India Biomass Market 

  • Primary energy consumption has increased significantly in India over the last few years, due to rapid industrialization and urbanization. According to the BP Statistical Review 2019, primary energy consumption rose by 7.9% in India in 2018, the highest growth rate since 2007. Power & heat generation accounted for major share of primary energy mix in India in 2019. Fossil fuels such as oil, gas, and coal are employed in majority of power and heat generation in the country.
  • Depleting crude oil reserves and increase in level of GHG emission have propelled the demand for clean energy resources in India. Biomass is an organic, clean, and renewable source of energy. Utilization of biomass helps address environmental concerns up to a certain extent.
  • Increase in utilization of biomass and other renewable sources of energy is estimated to help reduce carbon dioxide emissions in India. The Government of India has set a target to reduce carbon emission by 33% to 35% by 2030 compared to the 2005 levels.
