Accelerating to Net Zero

Accelerating the deployment of biofuels is crucial to decarbonize global transport sectors

The recently published reports from the IEA Bioenergy study highlight the potential of biofuels to replace fossil fuels

Bioenergy Review 2023

How bioenergy contributes to a sustainable future

Modern bioenergy provides opportunities for developing countries

Over the past decades and in multiple countries, modern types of bioenergy have helped to reduce the dependency on imported fossil fuels, provide clean alternatives to traditional forms of bioenergy, and support the development of local economies

The role of biogas and biomethane in pathways to net zero

Biogas and biomethane provide sustainable flexible systems that play essential roles in circular economy, energy, and environmental systems

Campaigns Questioning the Use of Woody Biomass for Energy are missing Key Facts

There are concurrent media campaigns and publications questioning the use of woody biomass for renewable energy production. Several of them misrepresent on-the-ground forestry practise and bioenergy systems, and associate the use of woody biomass for energy with overexploitation of forests, even permanent deforestation, and “the burning of trees”.
