Bioenergy Associations & Research Programs

Bioenergy Feedstock Information Network (BFIN)
BFIN is a gateway to a wealth of biomass feedstock information resources from the U.S. Department of Energy, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Idaho National Laboratory, National Renewable Energy Laboratory, and other research organizations.
European Biomass Association
The basic aim is the promotion of biomass production and application throughout Europe.
Bioenergy Australia
Established as government-industry forum to foster and facilitate the development of biomass for energy, liquid fuels, and other value added bio-based products.
Denmark: Centre for Biomass Technology
Danish biomass information network of four technological institutes working with biomass. Their job is to promote the utilization of wood, straw and other biofuels for energy purposes as alternatives to traditional fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas.
Swedish Bioenergy Association
USA: Department of Energy(DOE): Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy(EERE)
A Gateway to hundreds of web sites and thousands of online documents on energy efficiency and renewable energy.
Bioenergy Section of the above DOE link.
USA: Biomass Energy Research Association (BERA)
An association of biofuels researchers, companies, and advocates that promotes education and research on renewable biomass energy and waste-to-energy systems.
USA: Biomass Energy information at U.S. Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL)
Portal to information on biomass
Center for Renewable Energy and Sustainable Technology (CREST) - Bioenergy
New Zealand Bioenergy Association
Established to promote and coordinate the development of a bioenergy industry in New Zealand. The Association provides a central focus point for liaison with Government agencies, the dissemination of information amongst the industry and long-term positioning of bioenergy into New Zealand's energy system.
The Netherlands: Energy Research Centre
ECN Biomass is dedicated to R&D; on the (thermal) conversion of biomass and waste (and coal) into power, heat and secondary (gaseous/liquid) fuels.
