Biomass thermochemical conversion technologies such as pyrolysis and gasification are certainly not the most important options at present; combustion is responsible for over 97% of the world’s bioenergy production. The first biomass sources used on Earth were wood and dry grass and for a long time these were used for cooking and warming. Products with fuel characteristics that are obtained biotechnologically from plant sources are defined as biomass energy sources. Generally biomass is an easily obtained energy source and therefore it is especially important for countries with forest and agriculture-based economics and with limited sources of energy (Karaosmanoglu and Aksoy 1988).

Recently, the IEA Reference Scenario projections for wind energy were updated to 75 GW in 2010, 145 GW in 2020, and 202 GW in 2030. The IEA advanced strong growth scenario projected a wind energy market of 82 GW in 2010, 165 GW in 2020, and 250 GW in 2030. Solar energy is defined as radiant energy transmitted by the Sun and intercepted by Earth. 20 and 15 μm. The availability of solar flux for terrestrial applications varies with season, time of day, location, and collecting surface orientation.

3 24 1 Introduction ventional oils. This has resulted in a large increase in content of polar molecules, of which the asphaltenes are the largest and most troublesome. Natural bitumen is so viscous that it is immobile in the reservoir. For oil sand deposits less than 225 ft deep, bitumen is recovered by mining the sands, then separating the bitumen from the reservoir rock by processing it with hot water, and finally upgrading the natural bitumen onsite to a synthetic crude oil. In deeper oil sand deposits, where the bitumen is commonly less viscous, steam is injected into the reservoir to mobilize the oil for recovery by production wells.
