About the Working Group

Biopower has great potential and plays an important role in developing the EU’s energy system with its increasing share of renewables. Set up in 2017, the Biopower & CHP working group focusses on the promotion of the Biopower sector (Power-only & CHP).  It offers the possibility to exchange ideas and voice opinions, aiming at defining Bioenergy Europe’s position on power related policies.

Key topics

  • Market design initiative;
  • Biopower related issues under the new Renewable Energy Directive;
  • European Green Deal;
  • Carbon capture and storage.
