Bioenergy derived from biomass can create liquid biofuels for transport, replacing petrol for cars and diesel in trucks. Biodiesel, bioethanol and biocrude are all biofuels that can be used as renewable alternatives to fossil-based fuels.
Renewable heat can be derived from bioenergy feedstocks, such as forestry residues and other biomass products and turned into energy for heating living and working space and water.
Bioenergy derived from biomass can create sustainable and reliable electricity. Unlike many other renewable energy sources, bioenergy can be stored and deployed to meet demand as they vary, making bioenergy a potentially valuable component of a reliable renewable energy.
