This report is produced yearly by the European Commission in order to provide: 1) a concise and authoritative assessment of a portfolio of low-carbon energy technologies currently in place in the European Commission; 2) their current and estimated future market penetration and the barriers to th
This map visualization tool presents bioenergy potentials in Europe, including those for several types of biofuels, biogas, and solid biomass. The website includes one-page reports on each bioenergy source in each country.
This report addresses how the production and use of bioenergy products are likely to influence the future state of water resources and asserts that bioenergy development needs be carefully planned to avoid it adding to existing pressures.
This tool provides very detailed cost estimates for a variety of clean energy technologies in the United States. It covers generation, fuel, and vehicle technologies. Estimates presented include capital costs, feedstock costs, levelized cost of energy, and levelized cost of fuel.
This report explores the experiences and challenges of the renewable energy sector to date, both in meeting the requirements of South Africa’s Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement Programme (RE IPPPP) and in planning for its longer-term implementation.
This paper provided a basis for discussion during a U.S. Department of Energy Clean Cities strategy workshop. It explores the current market status of ethanol (E85 - 85% ethanol, 15% gasoline) and flexible-fuel vehicles in the United States.
The study aims to support Brazil's continued efforts to foster development while reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
This report describes problems that occured at the sites where ethanol buses were demonstrated within the BioEthanol for Sustainable Transport (BEST) project and how they were solved.
