Readers’ feedback on the 2015 Edition

“Finally congratulations to all of you on a wonderful publication – the graphics, design, editorials, etc. make the entire publication not just a “must read” but a “want to read”. That is no mean achievement – making statistics, policy & hard facts, typically material with high “dry matter content”, into a fluid & dynamic “matter of fact” style read! “

“Congratulations AEBIOM Team! I just got through reading the AEBIOM Statistical Report 2015 (Key Findings Report). Short summaries, colorful graphics and pictures are excellent for these purposes. Professionals will get quite quickly an actual overview about the basic energy situation we just have in Europe. That´s good.”
