WG BIOPOWER & CHP
The Working Group Sustainability was created in 2012 in the context of the preparation of the EU legislative framework on bioenergy sustainability. key topics discussed by the WG include sustainable forest management, greenhouse gas emissions savings, and concrete consequences of EU requirements on economic operators.
The WG’s main objective is to contribute to a supportive business environment for our members to thrive in by formulating and disseminating Bioenergy Europe’s common positions on EU competitiveness related legislations.
The Working Group promotes specific types of biomass feedstocks such as solid vegetal residue streams from agriculture and dedicated perennial lignocellulosic crops. Both result in abundant feedstock sources that are – to this day – largely underutilised.
& ENERGY CROPS
In the framework of EU’s long-term decarbonisation strategy, tackling the heating and cooling (H&C) sector is getting more and more attention. Biomass can offer a wide range of sustainable solutions, including in the residential sector.
