Bioenergy in Net Zero Report

The IEA recently developed a report ‘Net zero by 2050’ investigating optimal pathways towards climate neutrality in 2050. A dedicated website was created also for the contribution of bioenergy towards this target. The share of modern bioenergy in the total energy supply is expected to grow from 6.6% in 2020 to 18.7% in 2050. For more information, please contact Michal Dlugosz.

Energy and Environmental State aid guidelines (EEAG)

Based on the leak of the EEAG, the Secretariat of Bioenergy Europe identified the key elements of the proposed revisions including a threat of a possible differentiation among renewable energy sources technologies (zero emissions renewable sources). The Secretariat requested meetings with EU officials from DG ENER and DG COMP to oppose any form of such differentiation. Moreover, 6 Member States published a joint letter which calls inter alia for prolonged support of crop-based biofuels and bioliquids. For more information, please contact Michal Dlugosz.
