Agroenergy is a new branch of agriculture with the aim of biomass production for energy by means of dedicated crops and biomass conversion to solid, liquids or gaseous biofuels. These biofuels are used in domestic heating, transport, or electricity production as well as in industries with heat demand or as alternative raw material to petrochemical products.

 

The Agroenergy Group has been working at the College of Agricultural Engineering (Technical University of Madrid) since 1980, developing and participating in several national and international projects resulting in numerous scientific publications and dissemination activities such us conferences and specialization and post-graduated courses. Currently, learning Agroenergy is possible as an optional subject from the Engineering studies (basic level) and as a PhD course (specialization level).
