Integrated bioenergy hybrids – Parallel session at the 2016 EUSEW conference.
As wind and solar are quickly growing in market share, managing temporal fluctuations in energy supply is becoming increasingly important. Bioenergy has great potential as a stabilising element in the renewable energy supply system. As biomass is often available only in limited quantities, sharing the energy supply contribution with other renewable energy sources (RES) can also overcome some of the constraints in biomass availability. In short, integrated renewable energy systems, or bioenergy hybrids, can make renewable energy more abundant, stable and affordable in comparison to separate processes operating with single energy inputs.
This session provides a review of the current status of integrated bioenergy hybrids in Europe.
