By February 2024, India's biomass power capacity had surged to 10,845 MW as per the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE). This surge in biomass power is crucial for India as it aims to meet 50% of its energy requirements from renewables. In this context, the efficient management of the biomass supply chain, especially the agricultural biomass supply chain as India is an agrarian economy, becomes imperative not only for energy generation but also for livelihoods and sustainable development.

Policy interventions are pivotal for a sustainable agricultural biomass supply chain in India, as well as to address challenges and foster a transition to cleaner energy. Further, enhanced financial incentives, infrastructure development, and capacity building for improving the agricultural biomass supply chain are crucial for India's greener and more sustainable future.
