Bioenergy represents more than 60% of the renewable energy consumed in the EU28 and its contribution to the energy mix is pivotal to achieve a low carbon economy.

The capacity of agriculture to mobilise further unexploited potential will be crucial to meet the EU long term
emissions reduction target. To this end, bioenergy-oriented agriculture development will be a key driver to determine
the long-term potential available.

With 95% locally produced biomass, the growth potential of  bio-energy relies essentially on the potential of sustainable biomass resources available in Europe.

This paper aims at communicating the environmental and economic benefits of these agrobiomass types and points out at possible solutions to the existing barriers to increase their use.
