IEA Bioenergy Webinar – An introduction to quantifying the climate effects of bioenergy

31 Mar 2022

IEA Bioenergy Webinar Series – 31 March 2022

Presented by

The IEA Bioenergy Task 45 aims to build a body of knowledge to equip the community of practice to undertake well-informed studies on the sustainability of bioenergy. This includes the development, demonstration and refinement of metrics, methods and tools for the quantification of GHG emissions related to bioenergy production and use.
Within this context, the webinar will address selected aspects and discussions that can help stakeholders to deepen their general understanding for available tools and methods as well as crucial elements to be considered in the quantification of climate impacts of bioenergy supply chains.

The topics covered in the webinar include
i) a discussion of potential reasons for contrasting findings about the climate effects of forest bioenergy (Task 45 has published a paper on this topic which is available here)
ii) a comparison of selected calculation tools for bioenergy pathways (a publication from a related IEA Bioenergy intertask project is available here)
iii) a presentation on existing tools and illustrative examples which shall provide orientation for stakeholders that are new to the topic.
