Content Description

The IEA Bioenergy Annual Report 2005 contains a feature article about options for Trading Bioenergy Products and Services prepared by Tasks 38 and 40. Bioenergy is increasingly utilised to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG). Various options exist for trading bioenergy and bioenergy services between countries. In this paper, trade in biomass fuels, electricity, renewable certificates, and CO2 credits are presented as options for business and policy makers as they try to meet increasing energy demands, while at the same time addressing national and international commitments to reduce GHG (CO2) emissions and increase renewable energy sources.

The progress report for following 12 ongoing Tasks during 2005 is provided:

  • Task 29: Socio-economic Drivers in Implementing Bioenergy Projects
  • Task 30: Short Rotation Crops for Bioenergy Systems
  • Task 31: Biomass Production for Energy from Sustainable Forestry
  • Task 32: Biomass Combustion and Co-firing
  • Task 33:Thermal Gasification of Biomass
  • Task 34: Pyrolysis of Biomass
  • Task 36: Energy Recovery from Municipal Solid Waste
  • Task 37: Energy from Biogas and Landfill Gas
  • Task 38: Greenhouse Gas Balances of Biomass and Bioenergy Systems
  • Task 39: Liquid Biofuels from Biomass
  • Task 40: Sustainable International Bioenergy Trade: Securing Supply and Demand
  • Task 41: Bioenergy Systems Analysis
