IRENA: Biomass could reach 60 percent of total global renewable energy use by 2030

IRENA: Biomass could reach 60 percent of total global renewable energy use by 2030

The agency's REmap 2030 foresees a major role for modern, sustainable biomass technologies in efforts to double the share of renewables in the global energy mix. A new report, “Global Bioenergy Supply and Demand Projections for the Year 2030,” examines the biomass potential in world regions and with different technologies for rapid and sustainable scale-up of this vital renewable energy resource. If all the technology options envisaged in the REmap analysis are deployed, total biomass demand could reach 108 exajoules worldwide by 2030, representing 60 percent of total global renewable energy use. That would be equal to 20 percent of the total primary energy supply. “Sustainable bioenergy has the potential to be a game-changer in the global energy mix,” said IRENA Director of Innovation and Technology Dolf Gielen. “Sustainably sourced biomass, such as residues, and the use ...
