What is biomass power and what does a biomass power consultant do? Biomass power is carbon-neutral electricity generated from renewable organic waste that would otherwise be dumped in landfills, openly burned, or left on the ground in fields or forests. This organic waste can include scrap lumber, forest debris, urban wood waste, agricultural harvest waste, and other industry byproducts. Biomass power uses these natural materials to generate clean, renewable electricity, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
A biomass power expert has experience in identifying, procuring and using biomass materials to produce electricity. Typically, the consultant or expert comes from an engineering background and has experience in working with one or more biomass materials, electrical generation or power plants, and understands the interconnection to a utility company or the electrical grid. A biomass power consultant or expert can assist with due diligence studies and reviews of projects and technologies, help source feedstocks or perform feedstock studies for the availability of biomass, provide design services, equipment selection, project management, construction management or other expertise and related services to convert biomass materials to electricity or thermal energy.
