Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

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 parts of renewables for a majority of countries.

The uptake of renewables in general, and biomass in particular, are 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.

This is a continued theme, providing a platform for researchers from all over the world to submit original papers of new case studies on the use of biomass for energy for a particular country.
