The Availability of Biomass Resources for Energy: Summary and Conclusions – ExCo58 Workshop

Mar 2008

This publication provides the summary and conclusions from the workshop on ‘Availability of Biomass Resources – The Likely Impact of Certification and Sustainability Criteria, and of the Kyoto and post-Kyoto Frameworks´ held in conjunction with the meeting of the Executive Committee of IEA Bioenergy in Stockholm, Sweden, on 4 October 2006.

The purpose of the workshop was to inform the Committee about the likely impact of the development of certification and sustainability criteria and the impact of land-use related provisions in the Kyoto and Post-Kyoto Frameworks on the use of biomass for energy. This should allow the Committee to consider the implications for work within the Agreement, and the potential for the further development of bioenergy in both the short and long term.
