UN Sustainable Energy coalition calls for Biomass energy to address global trends

At the recently held 2nd Annual Sustainable Energy for All (SE4ALL) Forum, a newly formed coalition asserted its aim to expedite efforts toward the development and deployment of sustainable bioenergy. Sustainable use of biomass was highlighted as critical to the goals of doubling of renewable energy output and guaranteeing universal energy access by 2030.

Melinda Kimble, Senior Vice President for Programs at United Nations Foundation pointed out that, “The UN Foundation has always stressed the importance of sustainable bioenergy for helping to meet global energy demand. As was pointed out in the recent IPCC report on Renewable Energy – we cannot get to a low carbon world without sustainable use of biomass. We see the Sustainable Bioenergy HIO as a way to advance the use of biomass to meet pressing global needs.”

Energy generation from biomass and municipal solid waste (MSW) has frequently demonstrated its ability to sustainably and cost-effectively provide renewable energy to communities and industries. DP CleanTech understands the growing need for sustainable bioenergy and is committed to providing solutions that address growing energy demands and tightened emissions controls while remaining economically viable.
