Accelerating to Net Zero

IEA Bioenergy Conference 2021

Bioenergy – a critical part of the path to carbon neutrality. Online, 29 November – 9 December 2021.

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”.

Bioenergy and Sustainable Development - Climate Change Mitigation and Opportunities for Sustainability Co-Benefits

Bioenergy will make an important contribution to climate change mitigation; it represents between 15 and 30% of primary energy supply 2050 in global scenarios that limit warming to 1.5°C.

Renewable Gas ‐ Deployment, Markets and Sustainable Trade

With global fossil gas demand decreasing in emission reduction scenarios, renewable gases become a key component of the energy system, with biomethane as the largest contributor for its compatibility with current transmission/distribution infrastructure or end user equipment.

Implementation of Transport Biofuels Policies

The steady growth of biofuels production and use has been catalysed by biofuel policies applying to different stages of the production and consumption chain.

Progress in the Commercialization of Biojet / Sustainable Aviation Fuels

Sustainable Aviation Fuels will have to play a major role if the aviation sector is to significantly reduce its carbon footprint. However, to date, commercialization has been slow and current policies have proved inadequate to accelerate commercialization and widespread deployment of the various technologies described in the report.

Position Paper – Sustainable Natural Gas Production through Gasification

If not a technical barrier, then which barriers are holding back deployment of gasification based biomethane?
