The European wood pellet market for small-scale heating

IEA Bioenergy Webinar Series – 14 March 2017

Presented by Fabian Schipfer
Research associate & Austrian representative for the IEA Bioenergy Task 40
Energy economics group, Technische Universität Wien, Austria


This Webinar summarises the findings of an extensive quantitative wood pellet market analysis based on trade flow data, price developments over time, exchange rate fluctuations and temperature data. The focus lies on the main European small-scale heating countries including Italy, Germany, Sweden, France and Austria since January 2012.

Algae Bioenergy State of Technology Review

IEA Bioenergy Webinar Series – 25 January 2017

Presented by Lieve L.M. Laurens, Senior Scientist, and Jim McMillan, Chief Engineer both of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory

This webinar highlights the findings of a new comprehensive IEA Bioenergy report providing an international update on the status and prospects for using microalgae and macroalgae as feedstocks for biofuels and bioenergy. The objective of the new report is to update and expand on a previous report and cover microalgae and macroalgae derived bioenergy, biochemical and thermochemical conversion pathways, biorefineries and non-energy bio-products, as well as economics and sustainability.

Cascading of woody biomass: definitions, policies and effects on international trade

IEA Bioenergy Webinar Series – 1 September 2016

Presented by Olle Olsson, Research Fellow, Stockholm Environment Institute and Lena Bruce, Business Developer, Sveaskog

  olle2-2        lena-bruce_size_-2-2

This Webinar aims to inform the debate on cascading through an analysis of the terminology around cascading, and a review of how the concept is framed and implemented in policies of the EU and selected member states. It also discusses potential implications on international bioenergy markets from implementation of the cascading principle.
