Bioenergy is the most relevant renewable energy source today. Many technologies and concepts are implemented to provide heat, power and transport fuels. While biomass is a limited resource, so bioenergy provision needs integration, not only in the energy system but also in sustainable supply systems. The use of residual and waste materials will increase and needs mobilisation strategies and utilisation technologies. Due to diﬀerent biomass potentials, energy infrastructure and energy strategies in diﬀerent countries, even under the transformation towards more and more renewable energy-based energy systems the areas of bioenergy application remain diverse. However, flexible and hybrid concepts are gaining importance in all energy sectors; further technology development and digitalisation are pioneers. Additionally, the interaction with hydrogen and negative emissions is relevant in the long term and needs to be researched now.
