Bioenergy Europe Manifesto for the 2024 EU elections

Bioenergy Europe Manifesto for the 2024 EU elections

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.

70% of EU energy still comes from fossil fuels. European countries are significantly dependent on fossil fuel imports from unreliable countries that are willing to use their privileged position in international markets as a strategic weapon.

 Bioenergy Europe proposes the following pathways:

  1. 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 standards.
  • Require Member States to set end dates for the use of fossil fuels in different sectors with indicative trajectories and clear measures.

The EU will need to incentivise domestic renewable energy production to increase its energy security. Biomass for bioenergy is storable and bioenergy can be used as either a baseload or deployed on demand in response to supply shortages or consumption spikes.

  1. 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.

Even with a drastic reduction in greenhouse gas emissions there will still be some unavoidable residual emissions which can be addressed by biogenic carbon dioxide removals.

  1. Unlock the Potential of Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage, Utilisation and Biochar

  • 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.
