Biomass explained - U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA)

Biomass—renewable energy from plants and animals. Biomass is organic material that comes from plants and animals, and it is a renewable source of energy. Biomass contains stored energy from the sun. Plants absorb the sun's energy in a process called photosynthesis. When biomass is burned, the chemical energy in biomass is released as heat.
