Biomass production, utilization and losses from 1993 to 2012 were analysed in Fiji. Total theoretical annual average biomass potential is 83 PJ. Sugarcane alone is capable of generating potential energy of 52 PJ annually, and 137.64 million litres of ethanol could be produced from sugarcane, cassava and sweet potatoes per annum. Sugarcane (excluding the local sugar consumption) has the potential to produce 129.25 million litres of ethanol which is 29 % more than the total gasohol imported in 2010. Bagasse has the potential to generate 8.2 PJ of energy in Fiji.
