Abstract:Climate change, increasing global energy demand and uncontrollable oil prices indicate the need for new technologies and more efficient infrastructure in order to create sustainable energy. Sustainable energy is also high on the agenda of the Chinese government. This is clearly expressed in the 11th Five‐ Year Plan (2006‐2010). Biomass plays an increasing role in this strategy, because biomass resources tend to become more renewable, cost‐efficient, readily available (i.e. waste biomass) and biomass energy does not affect the CO2‐cycle. The government’s stimulus packages and subsidies greatly affect investment in R&D and business development in the future biomass market. Chinese entrepreneurs are highly dependent on government subsidies because these generally make their plant/business profitable. It should be noted that the share of biomass in today’s total energy production in China is relatively small. This research is conducted for the Economic and Commercial Department of The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Beijing. They proposed to do a research into the Chinese biomass market which contributes to their understanding of the developments in the Chinese biomass market and the opportunities for Dutch organizations in this market.
