Bioenergy, representing a staggering 62% of the renewable energy mix, is one of the main drivers of the transition towards a net-zero carbon economy – an economy with a balance between CO2 emissions and removals.

The availability of sustainable biomass is a decisive factor to determine the contribution of bioenergy to the 2050 energy mix. A recent literature review on biomass potential conducted by A. Faaij (University of Groningen) shows that the amount of biomass used for bioenergy can triple within sustainable and environmental limits and at a reasonable cost. This factsheet explains the main findings of the study and provides an overview on viable sectoral evolution in the next decades.
