12th Five Year Plan : India targets 1900 MW capacity addition from biomass

Ministry of New and Renewable Energy is promoting generation of power from biomass such as agricultural and agro-industrial residues and wastes. A target of 1900 MW power which includes 1400 MW from bagasse co-generation and 500 MW from other biomass has been fixed for the 12th Five Year Plan.
The cost of generation of energy depends on various factors such as price of coal and biomass, capacity of the plant and its plant load factor (PLF) etc. Generally, the cost of generation of energy varies from 4.00 to 5.00 per kilowatt hour from biomass and about 2.00 to 5.00 per kilowatt hour in case of coal.
