Bioenergy’s role in balancing the electricity grid and providing storage options – an EU perspective

Feb 2017

The objective of this IEA Bioenergy Task 41 report is to identify those areas in the grid system where bioenergy in balancing the grid and providing storage options can play a strategic role, and to promote the commercialization of a diverse set of such bioenergy applications and processes. In addition, the report seeks to identify and disseminate sound business models for practical, cost-effective and environmentally friendly ways to facilitate the transformation of the electricity grid based to a great extent on bioenergy technologies. Finally, in addition to market prospects, suggestions will be put forward for policy and RTDD options.
