In 2013, Brazil installed the largest biomass power capacity globally, with 1,730 Megawatts (MW), or 29.7% of the total for that year. The UK was a distant second at 12%, with an annual capacity addition of 641 MW. India, which has a large potential for biomass power, made a significant addition to its capacity with 500 MW, which equated to 10% of the global capacity addition. Thailand, Germany, China, Poland, and Italy followed, with 7.3%, 6.5%, 5%, 4.8% and 2.6% respectively. All other countries’ biomass power capacity additions accounted for the remaining 22% of the global annual capacity.
