29 November - 9 December 2021
IEA Bioenergy triannual online conference 2021
Bioenergy - A critical part of the path to carbon neutrality
This event features a series of online sessions spread over two weeks between 29 November and 9 December 2021. The central theme is the role of biomass in the transition towards a carbon neutral society.
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 will be needed in industry, transport as well as heat and power production. The conference sessions considered 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 consisted of 10 technical sessions and 4 panel sessions, spread between 29 November and 9 December 2021, with one or two 2-hour sessions per day. Each day was dedicated to a central topic.
All information of the sessions (presentations, recording, highlights, poll results) are available on the session pages.
Almost 1200 people participated to one or more of the conference sessions. They were from around 90 countries from all over the globe.
Recordings, highlights and polls results are available in each session detail page.
In addition there is room for Q&A for people who haven’t been able to follow the live sessions.
