IEA Bioenergy Webinar – An introduction to quantifying the climate effects of bioenergy

31 March 2022, 15:00 – 16:30 CEST

IEA Bioenergy invites you to participate in a free international webinar entitled “An introduction to quantifying the climate effects of bioenergy ”.

IEA Bioenergy Task 45 “Climate and Sustainability Effects of Bioenergy within the broader Bioeconomy” aims to build a body of knowledge to equip the community of practice to undertake well-informed studies on the sustainability of bioenergy. This includes the development, demonstration and refinement of metrics, methods and tools for the quantification of GHG emissions related to bioenergy production and use.
Within this context, the webinar will address selected aspects and discussions that can help stakeholders to deepen their general understanding for available tools and methods as well as crucial elements to be considered in the quantification of climate impacts of bioenergy supply chains.

The topics covered in the webinar will include
i) a discussion of potential reasons for contrasting findings about the climate effects of forest bioenergy (Task 45 has published a paper on this topic which is available here)
ii) a comparison of selected calculation tools for bioenergy pathways (a publication from a related IEA Bioenergy intertask project is available here)
iii) a presentation on existing tools and illustrative examples which shall provide orientation for stakeholders that are new to the topic.

More information and registration (free of charge):

FNR represents the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Germany in the IEA Bioenergy Technology Collaboration Programme (TCP). Stefan Majer, DBFZ, who presents at the workshop, is the National Team Leaders for Germany in Task 45.
