Bioenergy is extremely diverse. Heat, electricity and fuels can be produced from solid, liquid and gaseous biomass. Energy crops and wood are used as well as vegetable and animal waste. In Germany, the heating sector claims the biggest share of bioenergy’s contribution to a clean energy supply. Biomass is also used for electricity generation and as a biofuel.




The Agency for Renewable Energies

The Agency for Renewable Energy (AEE) provides advocacy for the "Energiewende". The task of the agency is to communicate the most important advantages of a sustainable electricity supply on the basis of renewable energy. Above all, these are: Security of supply, innovations, increase in employment, export potential, permanent cost-cutting power supply, climate protection and conservation of resources.

The AEE is supported by companies and associations in the renewable energy industry. The Renewable Energies Agency works throughout Germany, on a cross-party and cross-society basis. Several of her communications projects are funded by the Federal Ministries of Environment and Agriculture.
