Description: Clean Power Generation in Canada – Biomass This map is an illustration of Canada’s biomass power generating stations. These stations have been categorised on the basis of their power generation capacity. The threshold for this map is 0.25 MW. This is due to the differences in utilisation rates (such as availability, capacity factor and efficiency) between bioenergy and solar, hydro, wind energy. Bioenergy accounts for approximately 1.4% of Canada’s total electricity supply and about 1.5 per cent of Canada’s total electricity generation capacity. Two of Canada’s largest biomass power generating stations are in Ontario, with a combined capacity of 358 MW of clean electricity. Bioenergy is a renewable energy resource derived from biomass and biomass fuels. The term ‘biomass’ encompasses all organic materials of biological origin and can be sourced from various operations including forestry and arboriculture; agriculture and horticulture; and aquaculture. Biomass fuels can take the form of a liquid such as ethanol and renewable diesel fuels, a gas such as biogas and syngas or a solid such as wood chips and pellets. Bioenergy is an extensive sustainable energy resource for Canada.
