Bioenergy
Bioenergy in general and wood energy in particular are the dominant sources of energy for about half of the world’s population who are the poorest of the poor, and who use this energy mainly for cooking. They have very limited access to other forms of energy such as electricity or liquid fuels.

Bioenergy : Committee on Agriculture
Clean and safe energy services are essential for achieving the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. However, around two billion people, mostly living in rural areas of developing countries, are still without electricity or other modern energy services and rely largely on burning fuelwood and charcoal to meet their basic cooking and heating needs. At the international level, petroleum-based... more

Energy for and from agriculture
From an energy perspective, agriculture has a double role; it is an energy user and an energy producer. All stages of the food chain require one form of energy or another, and renewable energies such as biomass, solar and wind, could make an important contribution to its sustainability and productivity, through technologies useful in irrigation, mechanization, processing, conservation, transport,... more
