Researcher: 100% renewable energy requires ‘a lot of green hydrogen’

By |marec 18th, 2019|bioenergy, biomethane, hydrogen, News, power to gas, power to x, Renewable gas|

The production of so-called green hydrogen from wind and solar electricity is seen as a potential game-changer for the transition to a 100% renewable energy system. But getting there will take some time and some intermediary solutions will be needed, s...

The failure to reverse growth in greenhouse gas emissions means the world is now increasingly dependent on unproven technologies to remove CO2 from the atmosphere in order to avert dangerous climate change, scientists warned on Tuesday (19 February).

‘Bad news’ and ‘despair’: Global carbon emissions to hit new record in 2018, IEA says

By |oktober 18th, 2018|bioenergy, Fatih Birol, IEA, News|

Global carbon emissions will rise to a new record level in 2018, making the chances of reaching a target to keep temperature increases to 1.5 or 2°C "weaker and weaker every year, every month," the head of the International Energy Agency (IEA) has said.

EU bioeconomy strategy and IPCC – planets apart

By |oktober 17th, 2018|2050 climate strategy, bioeconomy, bioenergy, Biofuels, biomass, ethanol, IPCC, News, Paris Agreement|

The latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) indicates that biofuels will need to rise 260% by 2030 and 750% by 2050 in order to contain global warming below 1.5°C. Yet, the EU Bioeconomy Strategy, published days after, seems to ignore this, writes James Cogan.

Biomass policy under the spotlight as EU talks kick-off

By |februar 27th, 2018|bioenergy, biomass, deforestation, district heating, European Parliament, José Blanco López, News, Renewable Energy Directive, sustainable forestry, wood fuel|

The European Union’s proposed new biomass policy has enough built-in safeguards to ensure it doesn’t lead to additional carbon emissions, an EU official told a EURACTIV event last week, amid warnings that the policy risks making global warming worse by increasing deforestation.
