BIOENERGIA – Report del Ministero dell’Energia degli Stati Uniti e Microalghe

Bioenergia e Microalghe

Il dipartimento di Efficienza Energetica e Energia Rinnovabile (EERE, ) e la divisione di Tecnologie di Bioenergia (BETO), entrambi del Ministero dell’Energia ( statunitense, hanno prodotto una relazione su ricerche, sviluppo, impianti dimostrativi e portafoglio degli investimenti pubblici in energia rinnovabile da microalghe.

Bioenergia BETO-EERE:  Microalghe

Ministero dell’Energia Statunitense. Budget

In totale si tratta di valutazione tra pari, (meglio nota con il termine inglese di “peer review”), di 219 progetti di BETO, del valore complessivo di 1,6 miliardi di dollari, effettuata con la collaborazione di 42 esperti esterni (dall’industria, dalle università, e dallo stato). Le aree di questi investimenti sono:

Alghe (pp. 1-105)

Analisi e sostenibilità (pp. 107-201)

Conversione biochimica (pp. 207-279)

Biodiesel (pp. 281-311)

Bio-Petrolio (pp. 313-417)

Produzione e logistica delle matrici (pp. 419-509)

Gassificazione (pp. 511-565)

Calore ed Elettricità (pp. 567-599)

Bio-raffinerie integrate (pp. 601-657)

Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s (EERE’s) Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO)

In the spring and summer of 2013, the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s (EERE’s) Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO or the Office) implemented a comprehensive external review of its research, development, demonstration, and deployment portfolio. The BETO Project Peer Review was held May 20–24, 2013, at the Hilton Mark Center, in Alexandria, Virginia, and was followed by a higher-level, Program Management Review on July 30, 2013, at the Renaissance Hotel, in downtown Washington, D.C. The review was conducted in accordance with the EERE peer review guidelines, and it was designed to provide an external assessment of the projects in BETO’s portfolio and collect external stakeholder recommendations on the overall scope, focus, and strategic direction of the Office. Results from the peer review process are used to inform programmatic decision making; to enhance active project management; and to modify, expand, or discontinue existing projects.

In total, 219 projects across nine key technology areas—representing a total BETO investment of approximately $1.6 billion—were reviewed by 42 external experts from industry, academia, and government. The key technology areas reviewed during the 2013 review were as follows:

• Algae

• Biodiesel

• Gasification

• Analysis and Sustainability

• Bio-Oil

• Heat and Power

• Biochemical Conversion

• Feedstock Production and Logistics

• Integrated Biorefinery.

The 2013 Peer Review comprised three levels of review: (1) individual projects were scored on the basis of accomplishment, relevance, approach, future plans, and critical success factors; (2) each technology area portfolio was evaluated for overall potential impact, synergies, and effective project management; and (3) the structure and overall strategic direction of the Office was reviewed by an external Steering Committee. This report contains the results of each level of review, and represents the culmination of a 14-month peer review process. This report is inclusive of the inputs of approximately 300 participants in the peer review process, including principal investigators, reviewers, Steering Committee members, BETO staff, and contractors from BCS, Incorporated.

The Office would like to thank all of the reviewers and members of the Steering Committee who participated in this review. BETO is appreciative of the valuable insights and contributions that have been provided throughout the peer review process. Achieving the objectives of the Office is dependent on the effective management of all the projects in BETO’s existing portfolio and on the appropriate focus and structure of future initiatives. BETO values the input of all the stakeholders in the bioenergy sector and looks forward to working with them in the years ahead to continue progress on the path toward building a successful advanced bioenergy industry.
