The energetic use of solid biomass such as wood will increase to a larger extent than ever before in the years to come. At present, more than 2,200 biomass power plants are operational throughout the world. They have a total capacity of about 32,000 megawatts (MW). In Europe alone, there are more than 1,100 active biomass power plants. Another 130 coal power plants co-incinerate biomass. Over the past five years, about 150 biomass power plants went operational per year worldwide, each one with an average capacity of 11 MW, which is more than ever before. However, this growth will once more accelerate in the future: by 2016, 165 plants with an average capacity of more than 15 MW will be commissioned per year. Investments in new construction and maintenance of biomass power plants will increase from currently 10 to more than 14 billion euros annually. The trend for developing biomass follows the trend for developing renewable energies. More and more countries introduce feed-in tariffs for electricity from biomass. The increasing prices for fossil energy sources, the fact that many countries aim at increasing the use of domestic raw materials and the introduction of CO2 certificates for fossil fuels in Europe have over the past years improved the competitiveness of electricity generation from biomass.

Siemens Energy has received a further wind power order from Turkey. The customer is Borusan EnBW Enerji, a joint venture consisting of German energy supplier EnBW and Borusan Holding from Turkey. Siemens is to deliver a total of 22 wind turbines for the Balabanli onshore wind power plant near the city of Tekirdağ in the European part of the country. The scope of supply also includes a long-term service agreement. Each wind turbine has a capacity of 2.3 megawatts (MW) and a rotor diameter of 108 meters. The installed capacity of 50 MW will be sufficient to supply about 43.000 households with clean electricity.
In the next five years, 820 biomass power plants with a capacity of 12.5 GW will be constructed throughout the world – more than ever before. Europe will remain the largest market but China, India and the USA will experience the largest growth.
