IEA Bioenergy strategic study of certification systems

The International Energy Agency (IEA) Bioenergy organisation has launched an online survey that is part of a global study by IEA Bioenergy to make recommendations for improving the effectiveness of governance and certification systems to benefit sustainable bioenergy deployment.


The survey specifically investigates the operational experiences of people actively involved with any aspects of bioenergy production systems. This includes biomass feedstock production, conversion into primary and secondary biofuel and bioenergy products, markets and trade; also experts familiar with bioenergy based on agriculture, forestry and dedicated energy crops, and governance mechanisms that include binding and voluntary standards, legislation, regulations and certification schemes are welcome to share their experiences.
The survey places a particular focus on your input on how systems can be improved to be more effective.

IEA kindly invites you to participate in the survey, through the following link. We kindly request you to complete the survey by 15th of August 2012.

The full study reports will become available in the second half of 2012.
