A significant share of palm oil and soybean expansion happens on rainforests, forests, peatland and savannahs (land with high carbon stocks), according to a new study reviewing the latest scientific evidence on deforestation.

Aviation is widely seen as the transport sector that is most difficult to decarbonize. One option to dramatically reduce emissions within the aviation sector is through the use of low-carbon alternative fuels.

Solid biomass from forests, farms and cities provides a major energy source for heat and power generation, potentially accounting for a fifth of global energy consumption by 2050 amid accelerated adoption of renewables.

This collection aims to provide a reference for policy makers and practitioners working to scale up bioenergy in rural areas of sub-Saharan Africa. Energy, agriculture, forestry, environment, finance and business experts all seek for solutions to provide energy and also enhance food security, social welfare and environmental sustainability.

This report, launched at COP24 in Katowice, looks at the current status of the bioeconomy and its role in low carbon development scenarios. It also maps the four largest barriers for the industry and pathways for progress.

This update provides details on the latest policy measures that six select European Union member states (Denmark, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Sweden, the United Kingdom) are taking to support the deployment of advanced alternative fuels.

The European Union (EU) will continue incentivizing the use of biofuels and other renewable fuels through its recast Renewable Energy Directive for 2021-2030 (RED II).

CO2 Emissions from Fuel Combustion 2018 provides comprehensive estimates of CO2 emissions from fuel combustion across the world and across the sectors of the global economy. This 2018 edition includes data from 1971 to 2016 for more than 150 countries and regions worldwide, by sector and by fuel; as well as a number of CO2-related indicators.

Indonesia has an ambitious 20% blending mandate for biodiesel in transport diesel fuel and relies almost entirely on palm oil to meet this target. This white paper assesses the potential of used cooking oil (UCO) as a biofuel feedstock in Indonesia.

Using fossil fuels to provide transport, power industries, agriculture and cities threatens the climate with anticipated consequences for ecosystems, the economy and society as a whole. Yet access to energy improves lives and is necessary for social development.
