Bioenergy systems can provide multiple services and benefits to a low-carbon energy system.
Examples include technologies and concepts providing grid stability for a power system with large amounts of variable wind and solar energy; dispatchable production of energy and other products according to market demand; integrated poly-generation systems combining the production of heat, power, fuels and/or chemicals; long-term storage options such as biofuels and biochemicals; or ancillary services to support system reliability. Moreover, bioenergy can be combined with carbon capture and storage or utilisation (CCUS) providing opportunities for net negative emissions.
This session will look into technical options, expectations and success factors, as well as exemplary cases providing flexibility or negative emissions.
