Forest Biomass 

The use of biomass dates back to prehistoric times when it served as a source of heat and light. With the emergence of fossil fuels and the development of energy infrastructure in modern countries, biomass lost its leading position, but it remained a primary energy source in developing countries. However, in recent times, it has experienced a renaissance due to environmental concerns associated with the use of fossil fuels and its status as a renewable energy source.

When comparing the use of biomass for electricity generation with wind and photovoltaic energy, biomass is significantly more predictable in terms of production. The production of a cogeneration unit can be considered on par with a wind turbine or a solar park, whereas wind and solar power production heavily depend on weather conditions.
