This resource was developed by students and faculty of the Energy and Resources Group and Richard & Rhoda Goldman School of Public Policy at UC Berkeley to review the current state of biofuels energy analyses. The researchers published their results in Science in January 2006.
This Department of Energy report summarizes the collective suggestions of a December 2005 workshop involving more than 80 scientists with expertise in various aspects of bioenergy production.
Published by the Natural Resources Defense Council, this December 2004 report lays out an aggressive plan for how biofuels can become cost-competitive with gasoline and diesel, slash global warming emissions, improve air quality, and allow us to invest our energy dollars at home.
This DOE report provides a detailed roadmap for cellulosic ethanol research.
