Göran Berndes’ research integrates land use, industrial and energy systems at scales ranging from local case studies to the global context. He is particularly interested in sustainability effects of land use and biomass production for food, energy and materials. Recent years, much of the research has focused on climate and environmental effects of bioenergy and other biobased systems, and how the promotion of biobased systems can help meeting ambitious climate targets. Relating to this, he has investigated how new biomass production systems can be integrated into landscapes to mitigate existing land use impacts and improve resource use efficiency.
Göran has contributed to three previous IPCC reports and currently serves as coordinating lead author in the Sixth Assessment Report. He is since about ten years engaged in the implementing agreement for bioenergy within the International Energy Agency (IEA) and he currently leads IEA Bioenergy Task 45 - Climate and sustainability effects of bioenergy within the broader bioeconomy. At Chalmers, he leads the profile Energy in a Circular Economy within Chalmers Energy Area of Advance.
