Bioenergy in the news

I have talked before about the great UN agency, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) (read the previous entry). They have released a few reports in the past few days dealing with bioenergy. There are significant benefits to farms from the growth of this industry, but the development needs to be examined. The UN released a report "Sustainable Energy: A Framework for Decision Makers" that examines this issue in more detail. For those interested in a quick summary, check out this press release.

The FAO also announced the release of the new Global Bioenergy Partnership (GBEP) web site. This web site provides links to the work of the GBEP as well as that of other groups in this developing field. There is not a lot of information here yet, but hopefully the site will continue to expand and grow.
