Electric power and warmth from biomass

The design of the equipment will strongly change during the next 20 years. At the moment such equipment are construed as constantly running run power stations.

  From constant running to peak power plant

The current situation for biomass power plants is very easy. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week the same tariff for the delivered electric power. The facilities are built as cheap as possible, gas storage and engines are for steady continuous operation.

It could soon happen, that on a sunny and windy day, all wind power plants and photovoltaic devices deliver more electric power than needed. Some years later could be a sunny day enough, that all electric power comes from the sun only.

Dynamic electricity tariffs will be the result. High prices for electric power on a windless rainiy day with much clouds.

  • bigger gas storage to collect more gas for peak demand hours
  • Several gas engines for top electric power instead of basic load
  • Fischer Tropsch systems to produce a Diesel similar fuel out of the fermentation gas.
Electric power and heat demand will lead to dynamic decisions. If there is no demand for heat, the gas engine will maybe start only at 20 Cent/kWh. If in the winter time is a demand for heat, the gas engine starts maybe at only 15 Cent/kWh.

Instead of main power stations produce an intelligent network of small power plants producing electric power, or gas for the next peak demand, or liquid fuel by gas. the small{ power stations which produce everybody for themselves optimized current gas on stock or process gas to liquid fuel.

Biomass can in an dense inhabited industry country be only a complement to electric power from sun and wind. At all enthusiasm for biomass, do not neglect the photovoltaic.
