Report of an Expert Workshop on Renewable Energy and Biofuels

The CAAST-Net project undertook activities of research prioritisation related to the enhancement of African participation in FP7 through experts' workshops held in Africa. Workshops were organised in consultation with, and where possible, the participation of the relevant EC directorates, in order to maximise opportunity for cooperation and exchange. According to the areas covered by the FP7 energy work programme and the recommendations of European Commission highlighting the renewable energy area, the experts identified the following focal points for the CAAST-Net expert workshop: renewable electricity generation; renewable fuel production; CO2 capture and storage technologies for zero emission power generation.
