The Bioenergy TCP offers opportunities to coordinate the work of national programmes across the wide range of bioenergy technologies.

Executive Committee

The aim of the Bioenergy TCP is to improve cooperation and information exchange between countries that have national programmes in bioenergy research, development and deployment. More specifically, the aim is to achieve a substantial bioenergy contribution to future global energy demands by accelerating the production and use of environmentally sound, socially accepted and cost-competitive bioenergy on a sustainable basis, thus providing increased security of supply whilst reducing greenhouse gas emissions from energy use. The Bioenergy TCP Executive Committee Representative for Ireland is Dr. Matthew Clancy (SEAI).
