                  IEA Bioenergy
          International collaborative agreement set up in
           1978 by the International Energy Agency (IEA)
          IEA Forestry Energy  IEA Bionergy (1986)
             to improve international cooperation and information
              exchange between national bioenergy RD&D
              programmes.
             to realise the use of environmentally sound and cost-
              competitive bioenergy on a sustainable basis.
             to provide a substantial contribution to meeting future
              energy demands.
          19 countries participating plus EC.
          Series of Tasks to conduct work
          Forest Research is NZ Contracting

                    Objectives
          Promote market deployment of technologies
          Actively encourage the development of
           networks of participants involved in
           research, development, demonstration &
           deployment of bioenergy
          Increase the role of industry in IEA
           Bioenergy
          Increase membership
          Increase interactions with other global,
           multilateral energy and environmental
           programmes

           The Tasks of IEA Bioenergy
          Biomass resources: Forestry and
           agricultural products, municipal solid waste
          Bioenergy conversion: Combustion,
           gasification, thermochemical and
           biochemical processes
          Bioenergy utilization: Heat and power
           production, transportation fuels
          Integrating research themes: Techno- and
           socio-economic and environmental
           analyses, greenhouse gas balances

          Benefits of IEA Participation
          Access to over $500 million of bioenergy
           related research in 19 OECD countries.
          Access to an international pool of bioenergy
           related experts.
          Platform for collaborative R &D projects
          Participation in international meetings
          Benchmarking of research activities
          Access to latest reports and information on
           many aspects of bioenergy

         Benefits of New Zealand
         Participation
         Strategy: Implementation of Kyoto
            Projected emissions                  440 Mt
            Assigned amount                      365
            Net excess emissions                 -75
            Existing policies
                NEECS                            20
                Waste strategy                   5
            Net amount after existing policies   -50
            Sink credits generated               105
            Estimated net positive position      55

         Sustainability


                               -Protection and
                               enhancement
                               of sinks




                               -Fossil fuel
                               substitution

         National Energy Efficiency and
         Conservation Strategy
          Sets a renewable energy target
             30 PJ of additional renewable energy by 2012
             Hydro, Wind, Geothermal, Biomass & other
             Biomass can contribute 15PJ
              • Improved use of biomass in the forest industries
              • Co-generation, stand alone electricity
              • Distributed energy (domestic heating, light
                 commercial, light industrial, new industries)
          IEA Bioenergy will play a key role in
           assisting New Zealand achieve this goal

Page 9
                    Future
           New Zealand's participation is currently
            being restructured
           Move from Research Providers to
            Consortiums
           Currently in 3 Tasks (SRC, Gasification,
            GHG)
           Encouraging other industries to become
            involved (Coal, Diary)
           IEA Bioenergy participation should be a key
            component of Govt strategy for Kyoto
            compliance and achieving goals of NEECS
