The work scope will have more focus on market dissemination and implementation. This is secured through enhanced interaction with individual industries, industry groups and other IEA IA's and Bioenergy tasks. The program of activities builds upon the work done in the previous triennium and addresses the key technical, economic, environmental, and social issues that impede market introduction of biomass combustion and co-firing technologies. It covers a wide range of combustion technologies, fuels, and socio-economic conditions that prevail in the different member countries of this Task, varying from domestic woodstoves to industrial combustion for heat generation, dedicated combustion based power plants and co-firing applications.
The set of activities are geared towards effectively collecting, sharing, and analysing the policy aspects of results of (intern)national R&D programmes that relate to these priorities. The results of these actions will be disseminated in various ways (workshops, reports, publications, databases etc.) In addition, a number of specifically designed, strategic actions will be carried out by Task members to catalyse this process.
