The BioenergyWiki was developed in cooperation with the CURES network and an international Steering Committee. It is currently being hosted by the National Wildlife Federation with support from the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, the Biomass Coordinating Council of the American Council on Renewable Energy (ACORE), the Heinrich Boell Foundation, Dynamotive Energy Systems Corporation, Renew the Earth (RTE), and the Worldwatch Institute.
The Steering Committee consists of Gustavo Best (UNFAO); Barbara Bramble (National Wildlife Federation); Bill Holmberg (ACORE); Suzanne Hunt (Worldwatch Institute); Juergen Maier (German NGO Forum on Environment & Development); Roberto Smeraldi (Amigos da Terra – Amazônia Brasileira); and Annie Sugrue (CURES).
The BioenergyWiki serves as an open and balanced electronic forum to promote the utilization of bioenergy in a sustainable manner. It advances understanding of relevant issues and facilitates sharing of information, views and experience. The wiki can serve as a repository or “hub” of useful information and links for documenting and monitoring the evolution of policy debates related to bioenergy. Individual and joint statements shared through the wiki can serve to inform the creation of shared views with a view towards making the production and use of biofuels environmentally and socially sustainable.
