Sub-Saharan Africa possesses considerable resources to produce sustainable liquid biofuels, based on biomass feedstocks that would neither conflict with food supplies nor add to carbon dioxide emissions.

The bioenergy industry has successfully portrayed itself to the EU as a sustainable, renewable energy solution, leading to a vast expansion in the use of biofuels and other types of bioenergy.

An analysis of advanced biofuel policies and recommendations for improving the effectiveness of policy support for emerging low carbon fuel technologies.

BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s bold plan to blend renewable fuels into its gasoline supply within three years will revolutionise its fledging biofuels industry, industry players said, likely spurring

This European Environment Agency’s (EEA) Signals 2017 – Shaping the future of energy in Europe: Clean, smart and renewable, examines the state of play of Europe’s energy system and recent trends. European countries consume less energy compared with 10 years ago, mainly due to energy efficiency gains.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency used too strict of a test when it denied Sinclair Oil Corp's request for an exemption from the country's biofuel regulations, a U.S.

Global food commodity prices are projected to remain low over the next decade compared to previous peaks, as demand growth in a number of emerging economies is expected to slow down and biofuel policies have a diminished impact on markets, according to the latest 10-year agricultural outlook published by the OECD and FAO.

Renewables Information 2017 includes detailed renewables and waste data by country and by product for OECD countries up to 2015, with provisional data for 2016. It also contains summary tables of renewables and waste data for non-OECD countries up to 2015.

The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) has set out to produce comprehensive, reliable data sets on renewable energy capacity and use worldwide. The Renewable Energy Statistics 2017 yearbook shows data sets on renewable power-generation capacity for 2007-2016, renewable power generation for 2007-2015 and renewable energy balances for about 100 countries and areas for 2014 and 2015. Further, it features statistics on investments in renewable energy from 18 major multi-lateral, bilateral and national development financial institutions, presented for the period 2009-2015.

The World Bioenergy Association (WBA) has launched its WBA Global Bioenergy Statistics report for 2017. The report claims that across the world, bioenergy remains the biggest source of renewable energy. A number of key findings are unearthed by the report. Most significantly, the global supply of biomass increased to 59.2EJ in 2014, a 2.6% rise on the previous year. In total, it accounted for 10.3% of the global energy supply. Biomass also accounted for three quarters of the total renewable energy supply.
