Electrical Enduse Efficiency Chances for Green ICT and Electronics in Austria
To date the land use sector has failed to contribute to achieving climate mitigation goals in proportion to its potential. A major reason for this is the lack of a sufficiently robust and attractive solution to the non-permanence (reversibility) of carbon stocks that would garner stron support from Annex-I country stakeholders, including carbon market investors. Unless a solid solution to the reversibility problem is developed, REDD+ will also fail to result in significant increase in the use of forests to mitigate climate change.
This publication is the Excutive Summary of a report jointly prepared for IEA Bioenergy by the Energy Research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN), E4tech, Chalmers University of Technology and the Copernicus Institute of the University of Utrecht.

IEA Bioenergy Task 39 - An Examination of the Potential for Improving Carbon/Energy Balance of Bioethanol
Approximately 128 GWth, the equivalent of 183 million square meters, of solar thermal collectorswere installed by the year 2006 worldwide (Weiss et al., 2008). Until now, the widespread use of solarthermal applications has focused almost exclusively on swimming pools and residential domestichot water preparation and space heating.

Task XVI - A manual for ESCOs, ESCO customers and ESCO project developers.1. Despcription of a methodology to compare finance options for energy service projects and 2. Opportunity Cost Tool: Estimation and Visualization of Energy Costs, Saving Potentials and Future Energy Cost Savings for the development of energy-contracting projects.
Potential for Solar Heat in Industrial Processes (Claudia Vannoni/Riccardo Battisti/Serena Drigo 2008)
The goal of this report, developed in the framework of the IEA Solar Heating and Cooling Programme Task33 and IEA SolarPACES Programme Task IV - Solar Heat for Industrial Processes (SHIP), is to highlightthe potential use of solar thermal (ST) plants to provide heat for industrial applications. In order to fulfil thisaim, several national potential studies were surveyed and compared with a focus on the key results and themethodologies applied.
Industrial Process Indicators and Heat Integration in Industries (Brunner/Slawitsch/Giannakopoulou/Schnitzer 2008)
The goal of this report, developed in the framework of the Task33/IV - Solar Heat for Industrial Processes (SHIP) of theInternational Energy Agency, is to give an overview of the toolswhich have been developed within this IEA Task 33/IV.
