FNR (Agency for Renewable Resources) was founded in 1993 by the German Federal Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection. Our main responsibility is to support research and development in the area of renewable resources, but we also inform the public about current research results, give advice on a range of applications of renewable resources and organise and take part in scientific events.
The Bioenergy Consulting Service is based at the Fachagentur Nachwachsende Rohstoffe (Federal Agency for Renewable Resources), the project executing organisation of the Federal Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection (BMELV) for supporting and coordinating research for renewable raw materials in Germany.
The purpose of the Bioenergy Consulting Service is to provide information on the various options of biomass utilisation for renewable energy production. It aims to facilitate information transfer between producers and users of biomass energy in order to increase the use of biomass energy in Germany.
