In many countries renewables are outpacing fossil fuels in terms of new investments. In 2013 the global amount of investments (not including hydro) reached USD 270.2 billion, 17% up from previous year (source REN 21). In this context, dominated by investments in solar and wind power, several Asian countries are increasingly looking at ways to use their biomass resources and are adopting ambitious targets for the development of biopower and biofuels. Global bio-power production increased approximately 9% in 2014, with China, Brazil, and Japan leading for capacity additions. Liquid biofuel production was up 9% in 2014, reaching its highest level to date. Although the United States and Brazil dominated overall volume, Asia experienced particularly high production growth rates.

According to IRENA, the estimated global biomass demand, in the United States, China, India, Brazil and Indonesia together accounts for 56% of the total by 2030. while the global biomass supply is estimated to range from 97 EJ to 147 EJ per year, and the largest supply potential exists in Asia, followed by Europe including Russia (43-77 EJ) [....].
