This page contains several databases and publication lists to expand your biomass knowledge and meet your research needs. Below you will find a description of each resource, as well as a direct link.

Alternative Fuels and Advanced Vehicles Data Center (AFDC) Publications Database 

Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) and administered by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), the AFDC Publications Database is a comprehensive resource for publications about alternative fuels, advanced vehicles, and regulated fleets. Search the database for citations and PDF versions of publications from federal agencies, as well as other books, conference papers, journals, newsletters, and reports. 

AFDC also provides state and regional resources, including the Federal and State Laws and Incentives, which provides access to summaries of key legislation related to alternative fuels and vehicles, air quality, fuel efficiency, and other transportation-related topics. This resource also offers search functionality sorted by technology/fuel, incentive, regulation, or user. 

Bioenergy Knowledge Discovery Framework (KDF)

The Bioenergy KDF is an online data resource that can benefit researchers, industry, policy makers, and the general public. This toolkit facilitates informed decision making by providing a means to synthesize, analyze, and visualize vast amounts of information in a spatially integrated manner. A Geographic Information Systems (GIS)–based framework allows users to comprehensively analyze the economic and environmental impacts of various development options for biomass feedstocks, biorefineries, and infrastructure. The Bioenergy KDF provides access to a variety of data sets, publications, and mapping tools that support bioenergy research. Users can contribute their own data, documents, models, and other types of information, fostering valuable exchange and collaboration among stakeholders.

ChemCatBio Publications List

The Chemical Catalysis for Bioenergy Consortium (ChemCatBio) is a research and development consortium launched in 2017 to identify and overcome catalysis challenges for biomass conversion processes. This publication database compiles journal articles on topics related to catalysis and green chemistry, as they relate to energy and fuels.

Consortium for Computational Physics and Chemistry Publications List

This resource lists publications and presentations associated with the Consortium for Computational Physics and Chemistry, a research collaboration of national laboratories for the Bioenergy Technologies Office (BETO).

Database of State Incentives for Renewables and Energy (DSIRE)

Search this resource to see a comprehensive listing of financial incentives and regulatory policies that promote renewable energy and energy efficiency. For each program listed, DSIRE includes a summary, as well as information about the program’s location, relevant dates, a link to the enacting legislation, and a link to the program website. Sponsored by DOE, DSIRE is operated by the North Carolina Clean Energy Technology Center at North Carolina State University.

Department of Energy Public Access Gateway for Energy & Science (PAGES)

PAGES is a DOE portal that provides free access to scholarly scientific publications that resulted from DOE research funding.

National Renewable Energy Laboratory Publications Database

The NREL Publications Database contains bibliographic information about publications developed or written by NREL staff and subcontractors from 1977 to the present. Search the database for publications related to renewable energy and energy efficiency.

Results of Cellulosic Sugar and Lignin Production Capabilities Request for Information

On July 20, 2016, BETO released a request for information (RFI) entitled “Cellulosic Sugar and Lignin Production Capabilities.” The purpose of this RFI was to develop a list of suppliers who are willing and able to produce and sell cellulosic sugar and/or lignin for use by the research community. BETO funding recipients, as well as the general research community, can use this information to determine resources that are available. To see the full list of RFI responses available, visit the Cellulosic Sugar and Lignin Production Capabilities RFI Responses web page.

Bioenergy Technologies Office Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Projects Map

The SBIR map provides a listing of SBIR competitively awarded projects that are located throughout the United States. Additional information about an individual project award, such as the Fiscal Year, state, SBIR phase, program, or funding amount, is available through the map and data table.
