In the negotiations for the revision of the Renewable Energy Directive (REDIII), new compromises have been agreed upon by the rapporteur, Markus Pieper (EPP, DE) and the rapporteur for opinion in the ENVI Committee, Nils Torvalds (Renew, FI). These compromises will be voted on during the European Parliament’s full plenary session next week. Despite showing some improvements, these proposals are still problematic for us and major restrictions on primary woody biomass remain. For more information, please contact Daniel Reinemann.
