Global Overview and Future Outlook of Bioenergy

The transformation of organic material into bioenergy offers a promising pathway for the sustainable advancement of energy. Bioenergy, originating from biomass, provides a nearly emission-free fuel source, thus playing a vital role in the renewable energy combination. Bioenergy represented 9.5% of the overall primary energy provision in 2020, predominantly led by modern applications of solid biomass. However, in order to restrict global temperature rise to 1.5°C, there is a pressing need for a substantial increase in supply estimates, reaching 86 EJ by 2030 and 135 EJ by 2050.

Investments in bioenergy infrastructure and technological innovation are essential to hasten its implementation. Various nations, such as the European Union, the United States, India, and Australia, have made significant progress in promoting bioenergy through policy measures and financial support.

The accomplishment of a net-zero carbon footprint by 2050 demands a swift shift towards sustainable bioenergy sources. The potential for bioenergy in the transition is vast, but its effectiveness relies on ensuring sustainability, reducing land use conflicts, and addressing emissions. By embracing advanced bioenergy technologies and optimizing land utilization, countries can fully exploit the potential of bioenergy in meeting climate targets while upholding environmental and social sustainability.
