Over the past five years, U.S. electricity generation from biomass across all sectors grew from 56 terawatt-hours (TWh) in 2010 to 64 TWh in 2015. Much of this growth occurred in southern states such as Virginia, Florida, and Georgia. In 2015, electricity generation from biomass across all sectors accounted for 11.3% of renewable electricity generation and 1.6% of total electricity generation in the United States. Nearly half of the electricity generated from biomass in 2015 was at industrial facilities outside of the electric power sector, such as pulp and paper mills. Within the electric power sector, biomass accounted for 6.3% of renewable electricity and 0.8% of total U.S. electricity generation.

E-Mobility Driven Forward With Boosts In Manufacturing And Infrastructure

With ambitious targets for electric mobility, Japan and China are currently driving the organisation of their national vehicle markets forward; both in the hydrogen and fuel cell technologies as well as in the further development of battery-driven systems. Emission-free drives for cars and buses are being advanced. The combination of rigid pollutant regulations and attractive incentive systems is — in China and in leading European markets as well as the USA, with Tesla — the unavoidable path that needs to be taken in order to meet the requirements of the Paris World Climate Convention.
