IEA Bioenergy has started to make a collection of success stories in the field of bioenergy. This is not intended to be a comprehensive exercise, but to provide a number of examples with a broad coverage in terms of geographical regions, feedstocks, conversion/end use, and actors.
A success story is defined as a project/initiative which provides a step forward towards longer-term sustainable bioenergy use. The project can be at demonstration, pre-commercial or commercial stage, but always in an operational environment. An important argument is the replicability and scale-up potential of the project, and its contribution to sustainable development goals (SDGs). Where possible, success factors and constraints are also highlighted.
