This report illustrates two alternative approaches to promoting sustainable woodfuel production by farmers and communities with a commercial focus. The report aims to provide readers with a thorough analysis of these two approaches, focusing on strategic aspects, guiding principles, overall results, and lessons learned.

The issues of biofuels and invasive species have rarely been tackled together. These guidelines aim to fill this gap by highlighting the risks of biological invasion by species introduced for biofuels production and to provide constructive recommendations on how to prevent the introduction, establishment and spread of invasive species resulting from biofuel developments.

This report contains a detailed assessment of the status and potential for the development of biofuels in Cambodia and presents a country strategy for biofuels development

This review provides an overview of the potential for
bioenergy and the challenges associated with its increased
deployment. It discusses opportunities and risks in relation
to resources, technologies, practices, markets and policy. The
aim is to provide insights into the opportunities and required
actions for the development of a sustainable bioenergy
industry.

The purpose of this study is to gain a more differentiated picture of the impact of the global financial crisis on the renewable energy sector by determining changes and trends in investment flows for renewable energy technologies and companies as the cost of capital rises and access to credit becomes more difficult.

The incoming Obama Administration and the 111th Congress face enormous challenges and opportunities in tackling the pressing security, economic, and environmental problems posed by the energy sector in the United States and worldwide. Improving the technologies of energy supply and end-use is a prerequisite for surmounting these challenges in a timely and cost-effective way.

This study of residential and transport sectoral energy use in India is part of a larger effort at LBNL to provide analysis of energy use patterns at the level of sub-sectors and end uses for all sectors. There are two motivations for this effort.

This paper is meant to deliver input into the political discussion on Emission Performance Standards (EPS) in the EU power sector. The paper will explore the effects of the introduction of an EPS on electricity sector emissions until 2030 and discuss various EPS related implementation issues.

The goal of this project is to explore nanowires (NWs) of Li-ion battery electrode materials for improving the battery energy and power density for electric vehicles. NWs offer advantages of a large surface to volume ratio, efficient electron conducting pathways and facile strain relaxation.
