Biomass includes a multitude of resources; from agricultural and forestry residues to organic componentsof municipal and industrial wastes. Missouri is host to a considerablevarietyof biomass resources and uses.
For basic information on biomass energy technologies and resources please see the U.S. Department of Energy's Biomass Technologies Basics website.
Solar energy can be broken down into two categories; solar electric and solar thermal. Solar electric consists of phtovoltaics (PV) and concentrated solar power (CSP) that produces electricity. Solar thermal technologies capture the sun's thermal energy for water or space heating. For passive solar building design please see Publication 1293

Wind Energy is typically harnessed through the use of wind turbines and wind mills to produce electricity, charge batteries, pump water, or historically to mill grains. The most common use in Missouri is to produce electricity.
