IEA Bioenergy Triannual Online Conference 2021


Bioenergy – A critical part of the path to carbon neutrality

Online, 29 November – 9 December 2021

The three-yearly conference of IEA Bioenergy will be held as a series of online sessions spread over two weeks between 29 November and 9 December 2021. The central theme will be the role of biomass in the transition towards a carbon neutral society.

The IEA Roadmap ‘Net Zero Emissions by 2050’ recognizes bioenergy as an important option, representing 18% of total energy supply in 2050, and playing a major role to reach carbon neutrality of the global energy system, either through the direct replacement of fossil fuels, or to offset emissions indirectly through the combined use of bioenergy with carbon capture and storage/utilisation. An increasing role of biomass/biofuels would be needed in industry, transport as well as heat and power production. The conference sessions will consider latest developments and prospects of biomass/bioenergy in different sectors, as well as sustainable feedstock mobilisation and the role of biomass in a circular bio-economy.

The conference sessions will discuss these main topics:

  • Feedstock mobilisation / Sustainability governance
  • Transport biofuels
  • Green gas
  • Circular economy and industry
  • Bioenergy in the energy system

An Opening Panel, an Industry Panel and two Closing Panels complete the agenda of the event.
Timings of the sessions are spread over the day to facilitate participation from all over the globe. Recordings will also be available on the conference webpage.

Participation is free of charge upon registration. In the registration form you can indicate the sessions you will follow.
