Bioenergy is a form of alternative energy. It is mainly produced through the thermal conversion of one or more renewable resources: sun, wind, ocean waves and many other renewable materials.

Bioenergy is a clean and renewable fuel created by the decomposition of organic waste and raw materials extracted from the earth.

In 2014, Denmark passed the country’s first law on bioenergy. Aside from adding a new dimension to renewable energy, this law also brought insight into a problem of the past – the disposal of organic waste.


Bioenergy refers to the energy that uses or is derived from biological sources to produce energy for transportation, heating, or other applications. It has been extensively developed as a renewable energy source from aerobic and anaerobic decomposition and biomass processing of harvested crops, livestock manure, sewage sludge and residues from urban waste streams.
It has also been used in other areas such as sewage heat receivers to generate electricity. An alternative renewable energy source based on bio-inspiration is fuel cell vehicles called electrons (EVs), which rely on on-site hydrogen fuel cells. The generation of electricity from water is also considered a form of bioenergy in hydropower.
Bioenergy includes both the extraction processes required to produce biofuels (also called intervention) and the issue of sustainable access to such biofuels. Bioenergy is a type of renewable energy made from organic materials and is different from other sources of electricity that rely on fossil fuels. Bioenergy is an alternative to traditional non-renewable energy sources such as fossil fuels, hydroelectric power, nuclear power, and wind power, which are considered non-renewable because they do not renew themselves in the same amount as they are consumed.
