TRANSPORT THERMIE (//Europa.eu.int/comm/dgs/energy_transport/) ENVIRONMENT European Environment Agency(EEA) (www.eea.eu.int) including its network EIONET(www.eionet.eu.int) Slide19:  NORDIC ENERGY RESEARCH (www.nefp.info) The present programme for 2003-2006 includes the Baltic Sea Region and the Nordic countries and has financial support from the Nordic countries’ energy ministeries and from the Nordic Council of Ministers. The programme include 15 projects of which two are related to bioenergy: Nordic Graduate School of Biofuel Science and Technology Bio Hydrogen Slide20:  FAO FAOs programme on wood energy (www.fao.org/ forestry) is designed to promote sustainable wood energy systems (SWES): Strengthen institutional capacity Reduce poverty and improve food security Mitigate climate change Forestry Energy Forum (www.fao.org/forestry/site) is a biannual newsletter. The entire range of fuels that can be derived from forest biomass. Slide21:  AEBIOM European Biomass Association (www.ecop.ucl.ac.be/aebiom) AEBIOM is a group of 28 national bioenergy/biomass associations with membership open to representatives of the European Union, Central and Eastern Europe. Biomass : All renewable and animal matters that can be used for industrial (fibre, chemicals) or energy production (heat, electricity and fuel). Almost all the BASREC countries are members: DANBIO, Denmark; EBA, Estonia; FINBIO, Finland; BBE, Germany; LATBIO, Latvia, NOBIO, Norway; POLBIOM, Polen; RBA, Russia and SVEBIO, Sweden Slide22:  USA The newsletter Biomass Research and Development Initiative provides frequent updates on bioenergy programmes, proposed regulations, awards, roadmaps for bioenergy technologies, etc in the US. (www.bioproducts-bioenergy.gov/) Slide23:  CONCLUSIONS Significant need for new knowledge as well as co-operation between countries sharing common interests Insufficient communication Numerous international energy research networks where bioenergy is included, as well as pure bioenergy networks More countries in the BASREC-region should be included in one or more of the already existing networks
