How2guide for bioenergy: roadmap development and implementation

As a flexible and competitive source of renewable energy, bioenergy can play a key role in decarbonising energy systems by responding to the needs of a wide range of demand profiles in the electricity, buildings, and transport sectors. Recognising the importance of taking a cross-cutting approach to bioenergy strategies that rely on sustainable biomass use, the International Energy Agency (IEA) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) have jointly prepared this How2Guide for Bioenergy, designed to provide policy makers with the methodology and tools required to successfully plan and implement a roadmap for bioenergy at the national or regional level.
