The IEA Bioenergy Executive Committee also appointed two new vice-chairs to assist the chair in his work: Sandra Hermle of the Swiss Federal Office of Energy and Dina Bacovsky of BEST (Bioenergy and Sustainable Technologies), Austria.

“This is an exciting opportunity for me to ensure that we continue to maintain the positive image of Bioenergy as one of the key mitigation options as the global community drives towards lower and lower carbon emissions,” Paul Bennet said.

The IEA Bioenergy Technology Collaboration Programme (IEA Bioenergy TCP) is a global network on research and implementation of bioenergy. It encourages the use of biomass as an energy source, to help lessen dependence on fossil fuels, both within and outside its member countries.
