The next EU mandate will have to address pressing issues such as climate change, energy security and a rising cost-of-living. Bioenergy Europe has the knowledge and expertise to assist European policy makers in designing the necessary framework


A Clear Fossil Fuels Exit Strategy

  • End all fossil fuel subsidies and develop a clear defossilisation strategy.
  • Calculate the full value-chain emissions for fossil fuels and create minimum
  • Require Member States to set end dates for the use of fossil fuels in different
    sectors with indicative trajectories and clear measures.


Sustainable and Efficient Bioenergy Enhances Energy Security

  • Launch an ambitious programme to replace old heat appliances.
  • Establish a fund for the modernisation of heating appliances and promote
    investments in efficient bioenergy use.
  • Add heat and energy storage mapping to the National Energy & Climate Plans.


Unlock the Potential of Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage
(BECCS), utilisation (BECCU) and biochar (BCR)

  •  Enable a political and financial framework to accelerate the ramp-up of biogenic Carbon dioxide removal technologies (CDR).
  • Set quantitative targets for technological carbon removals in 2030, 2040
    and 2050.
  • Promote synergies for bioenergy and BECCS in hard-to-abate sectors.
