The effect of climate change on current life is becoming more visible daily. Our capacity to be resilient to these changes is an act of responsibility for the future. Several directions could serve this purpose. The present study aims to determine the current state of the art in unconventional energy sources. Mainly, the focus will be on biomass. Biopower sources are an element of renewable energy alternatives, along with solar, wind, tide, wave, ocean, and geothermal. The statistics underline an increasing trend of these resource contributions to the total power input. The paper aims to determine the benefits of utilizing biomass as a renewable energy alternative. The key characteristics of such an approach will be examined, emphasizing their advantages and the potential for enhancing performance. There were limitations in accessing valuable information from the field. Through it, biomass-type resources present an increased interest due to their particular property to act in a double sense, unlike the other non-traditional ones. The extent of their application will be ascertained based on the available data.
