New IEA Bioenergy Publication: Roles of bioenergy in energy system pathways towards a “well-below-2-degrees-Celsius (WB2)” world

Report of a workshop held on 25 November 2019 in Berlin, and synthesis of presented studies

Under the IEA Bioenergy Inter-task project ‘The Role of Bioenergy in a WB2/SDG world’, a workshop was held in Berlin, on 25 November 2019, hosted by the German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL). The objective of the workshop was to examine, synthesize and disseminate information from recent studies that investigate how bioenergy and associated technologies may contribute to achieving the reductions in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that are needed to meet the WB2 target and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). The report summarises the workshop contributions and discussions, assesses the role of bioenergy in WB2 strategies, identifies the current state of knowledge as well as gaps in knowledge that need to be addressed.

The key conclusions and the link to the report can be found here:
