NARVAEZ RINCON, Paulo César. The current state of non-conventional sources of energy and related perspectives . Ing. Investig. [online]. 2010, vol.30, n.3, pp.165-173. ISSN 0120-5609.

This article presents an overview of world and Colombian energy sources, including distribution, production and consumption by fuel and end-user sectors, respectively, as well as a brief description of some non-conventional energy sources (NCES), pointing out those classified as bioenergy and used as non-conventional fuels in the transport and electricity generating sectors. Colombian policies for promoting the rational use of energy (RUE) and NCES are presented and their targets are compared to some established by the European Union and the USA.

Keywords : energy; non-conventional energy source; biomass; biofuel.
