Bio-energy Generation

Click for larger view of Bio-energy Explained »

Bio-energy is generated from different types of biological processes. A prime example is biomass which is a renewable form of energy that uses organic materials to produce heat, including residual materials from forestry operations, waste matter from agricultural production and animal livestock activities, and by-products of food-processing operations.

Technologies now exist to use this fuel to produce electricity in a manner that often provides clear environmental benefits - while reducing our dependence on non-renewable fuels.


The status of individual contracted electricity supply projects within different IESO procurement programs is now available in the IESO Active Generation Contract List.
