Wood and other types of biomass are widely used as fuels in the (private) domestic and industrial sectors, basically because they are cheaper than other fuels. Local availability and reliability of supply add to the economic advantages. Modern applications in both industrialized countries and in South-East Asia have demonstrated that biomass energy can also be competitive for larger-scale industrial applications. For fuel-importing countries, the use of local biomass can save substantial amounts of foreign exchange.

One of the major advantages of biomass energy is its small carbon footprint compared to fossil fuel. As long as new plant material is grown to replace that used, biomass energy produces no net CO2 increase. To the extent biopower reduces fossil fuel consumption it reduces CO2 release. To the extent biomass fuels replace fossil fuel and reduce the severity of forest fires and field burns, they reduce air pollution and the addition of nitrogen and sulfur compounds responsible for acid rain to the atmosphere.
