BELGRADE - Biomass has the biggest potential of all renewable energy sources in Serbia - which also include hydropower, wind power, solar power and geothermal power - and a share of around 61 pct, said the participants of Thursday's closing conference of a UNDP/GEF project titled Reducing Barriers to Accelerate the Development of Biomass Markets in Serbia, held at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Serbia.

The project, launched in 2014, was carried out by the Serbian Ministry of Energy and Mining and the UNDP.

Biomass is the most important renewable energy source in Serbia and its use reduces the risk of climate change and helps economic growth, experts said.

Biomass is particularly significant in agriculture and the price of technologies ensuring the use of renewables is on a constant decline, making them competitive energy sources compared to fossil fuels, they also said.
