Financial & Economic
Establishing local networks and usage of biomass shall be lowering the financial, transport and environmental costs. Biomass can be taken from many sources in the Punjab and where well managed, contribute to security of farmer incomes and for energy supply to the local region. A key economic benefit of bio energy is its potential to provide price stability in volatile energy markets. For example opportunity fuels from waste materials from agricultural produce or industrial processesócan generally be obtained for no or very low cost. As bioenergy technologies continue to improve, the potential for bioenergy to be a cost-competitive energy, choice increases. Even when the cost of bioenergy is greater than fossil fuels, in some cases bioenergy can help stabilize energy prices by providing more diverse sources of energy for the fuel supply. For example, biomass-fueled small plants can provide a hedge against unstable energy supply by allowing the end user to produce its own power even when prices for electricity are very high. In addition, small power generation system can be configured to accept a variety of feed stocks (e.g., biomass, biogas, natural gas) for fuel therefore, a facility could build in fuel-switching capabilities to hedge against high fuel prices and using a diversity of renewable resources can also provide economic benefits.

Social Benefits
Growth of energy crops could potentially compete for land with food cropping as demand for biomass increases. Biomass users may be connected in long-term supply contracts with small suppliers as a group to make them more empowered as having regular seasonal income generation.

Employment Generation (direct and indirect)
Biomass purchasing and processing can create both direct & indirect local business, job opportunities (250 Approx.) and support to the local communities & rural economy.

Environmental Impact
In comparison with other renewable energy technologies, woodlands, forestry and agriculture are generally perceived to be an environmentally and socially attractive amenity. Biomass-to-energy is not only to generate sufficient power but also used to clean-up the environment as well by conserving non-renewable fossil fuel resources and reducing the environmental impacts of burning crops residue in fields. Use of biomass for energy, diverts these materials from burning that generate carbon. Many biomass fuels generate low levels of such atmospheric pollutants as Sulphur Dioxide and CO2. Modern biomass combustion systems are highly sophisticated, offering combustion efficiency and eMission & Vision levels comparable with the best fossil fuel boilers.
