The work of IEA Bioenergy is carried out through a series of Tasks, each having a defined work programme. Each participating country pays a modest financial contribution toward administrative requirements, shares the costs of managing the Tasks and provides in-kind
contributions to fund participation of national personnel in the Tasks. The scope of the work
undertaken within IEA Bioenergy is shown in its website (www.ieabioenergy.com).
IEA Bioenergy provides opportunities for:
Researchers - to exchange information on recent developments in R&D through
networking, meetings and/or workshops; to provide opportunities for collaborative
Industry - to be informed of new projects; to work together to develop handbooks or
models; to offer early participation of industrial partners in RD&D work.
Policy-makers and decision-makers - to gain an international perspective on progress
in bioenergy; to compile guidelines and standards; to gain new perspectives on
deployment opportunities and issues.
IEA Bioenergy is keen to promote its work programmes within participating countries and to
encourage increasing involvement of industrial partners. It also wishes to encourage further
interest in its work from non-participating countries. All OECD countries are eligible to
participate fully. In addition, the IEA Governing Board has decided that the Implementing Agreements may also be open to non-member countries. If you are interested in finding out more about IEA Bioenergy, please contact the Executive Committee Secretary
