IEA Bioenergy triannual online conference 2021

Bioenergy – A critical part of the path to carbon neutrality

The IEA Roadmap ‘Net Zero Emissions by 2050’ recognizes bioenergy as an important option, representing 18% of total energy supply in 2050, and playing a major role to reach carbon neutrality of the global energy system, either through the direct replacement of fossil fuels, or to offset emissions indirectly through the combined use of bioenergy with carbon capture and storage/utilisation.

An increasing role of biomass/biofuels would be needed in industry, transport as well as heat and power production. The conference sessions will consider latest developments and prospects of biomass/bioenergy in different sectors, as well as sustainable feedstock mobilisation and the role of biomass in a circular bio-economy.

There will be one or two sessions of 2 hours per day. On-line participation is free of charge, but pre-registration is required.
Agenda and registration

Task 44 hosts a session Bioenergy’s contribution to low-carbon energy systems on 7 Dec 2021, 2:00-4:00 pm UTC. The session presents technical options, expectations and success factors for flexible bioenergy, as well as exemplary cases providing flexibility or negative emissions.
