Market and Industry Trends

Bioenergy involves the use of a wide range of biological materials for energy purposes. These can be converted into thermal energy, electricity and fuels for transport (biofuels) through a number of different processes. Many well-established bioenergy pathways exist that are technically proven and for which systems are available at a commercial level.

In addition, new routes are at the earlier stages of development, demonstration and commercialisation. Given the potential environmental, social and economic implications of using biomass materials for energy, the sustainable production and use of bioenergy is a key issue.
