IEA Bioenergy Countries Report

The IEA Bioenergy Countries Report was prepared from IEA statistical data, information from IRENA, and IEA Bioenergy Tasks’ country reports, combined with data provided by the IEA Bioenergy Executive Committee. All individual country reports were reviewed by the national delegates to the IEA Bioenergy Executive Committee, who have approved the content.

The individual country reports are ordered alphabetically with one exception: the EU is described as the first “country”, with those countries that are EU member states directly behind the EU chapter. After that all other countries are ordered alphabetically.

In the first section of each country report, national renewable energy targets are presented (first table in each country report), and the main pieces of national legislation are discussed.

In the second section of each country report the total primary energy supply (TPES) by resources and the contribution of bioenergy are presented. All data is taken from IEA statistics for the year 2014. Where 2014 data was not available, 2013 data was used. It is worth noting that data reported in national statistics can differ from the IEA data presented, as the reporting categories and definitions are different.
