REDIV on Permitting

The European Commission has released a proposal (REDIV) to amend the Renewable Energy Directive (RED), Energy Performance in Buildings Directive (EPBD), and the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) in order to speed up the permitting process for renewable energy projects. To do this, REDIV creates a new definition of a ’renewables go-to area’. Once again, “biomass combustion plants” are explicitly excluded from this definition and its application in Article 16a “Permit-granting process in renewables go-to areas”.
