China joins IEA Bioenergy Technology Collaboration Program

April 23, 2020 |

In France, IEA Bioenergy Technology Collaboration Program said that the People’s Republic of China has joined the TCP, bringing the number of contracting parties to 26.

Initially CNREC plans to join two IEA Bioenergy tasks: “Energy from Biogas” (Task 37) and “Climate and sustainability effects of bioenergy within the broader bioeconomy” (Task 45).

According to IEA data, in 2019 China accounts for comfortably over half of bioenergy additions in the power sector (4.7 GW) and it is the third largest global producer of fuel ethanol. In 2018 heat and electricity derived from solid biomass accounted for approximately 186,000 jobs and approximately 145,000 for biogas.

China possess significant biomass resources which could be harnessed to produce sustainable bioenergy, providing a solution to deliver cleaner air, enhanced energy security, waste management and meet growing energy demand. Much progress has already been made on this front as China leads deployment of bioenergy in the power sector, is scaling up biomass heating solutions, and growing biofuel production. Membership of the TCP will offer an avenue to advance and accelerate China’s deployment of sustainable bioenergy, and combine their market leading expertise with other bioenergy technology frontrunners worldwide.
