Select a Country: Germany

I believe the country of Germany would benefit the most from using biomass as a main energy source because it can be used for heating, electricity, and fuel. Most energy sources like solar or wind power can only be used for electricity. Your country could get the appropriate materials needed for this source easily because Germany is the greatest producer of wood in Europe. More than half the country is farmland. 2.1 million hectares of land are used for energy crop.
