Special Issue "Biomass for Energy Country Specific Show Case Studies"
A special issue of Energies (ISSN 1996-1073).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2017)
A printed edition of this Special Issue is available here.
There is ample evidence that the push for biomass as an alternative source of renewable energy to replace fossil fuels for heating and power generation is much greater than expected. There is a huge gap between the present contribution and the committed part of renewables for the majority of world countries.
The uptake of renewables in general, and biomass in particular, is still considered somewhat risky due to the lack of best practice examples to demonstrate how efficient the technology is today. Hence, the need to call for this Special Issue, focusing on country files, so that different nations’ experiences can be shared and best practices can be published, is warranted. This is realistic, as it seems that some nations have different attitudes to biomass, perhaps due to resource availability, or the technology needed to utilize biomass. Therefore, I suggest we go forward with this theme, and encourage scientists and engineers, who are researching in this field, to put forward case studies related to different countries. I certainly have one case study for the UK to put forward.
