Presentation Transcript

  1. Bioenergy as a part of future’s clean energy Remigijus Lapinskas, President World Bioenergy Association (WBA) XI Kazenergy Eurasian Forum 2017

  2. Global warming and climate change

  3. CO2 concentrations are increasing

  4. Global temperatures are increasing

  5. Fossil fuels are leading cause of climate change

  6. Global energy mix

  7. Global energy mix dominated by fossil fuels Bioenergy is the largest renewable energy source globally Source: IEA Key World Energy Statistics

  8. Bioenergy technology pathways

  9. Biomass feedstock sources

  10. Renewable Electricity • Renewables generated 5 469 TWh of electricity in 2014. • Hydro is the largest renewable electricity generating source • Bioelectricity is the 3rd largest renewable electricity generating source globally • Current production at 493 TWh

  11. Renewable heat Direct Heat: 46.7 EJ Derived Heat: 0.95 EJ

  12. Bioenergy sectors – Liquid Biofuels

  13. Special sectors Charcoal – 52 million tonnes Biogas – 58.7 billion Nm3 Pellets – 28 million tonnes

  14. Biomass potential towards 2035 Significant potential to expand the current use of biomass to at least 150 EJ by 2035 sustainably.

  15. Tools to increase renewable energy sources

  16. Tools – Fossil Exit Strategy • World needs an exit strategy to leave fossil fuels, step by step, year by year • A minimum reduction path would be to near zero by 2050 • Each country also needs a strategy for fast deployment of renewable energy • Rapid mobilization of biomass from all sectors • No new investments in fossil fuels

  17. Tools – Carbon Tax • Carbon tax - key instrument for energy transition • Benefits • Easy to apply and calculate • Tax neutral • Efficient • Global efforts undergoing to apply carbon tax
