Bioenergy is defined as renewable energy derived from any organic material excluding coal or petroleum. The term “biomass” refers to the organic material that is the source of bioenergy.  When biomass is burned, the chemical energy inside the organic material is released as heat.  This heat can provide electricity or useful thermal energy.  Biogas and biofuels are also forms of bioenergy.
