About the Working Group

In the last few years, the bioenergy sector has been witnessing a significant increase in the demand and consumption of wood chips, coupled with interesting changes in the market dynamics (e.g. size of end-users, new supply areas, increase trading). These changes require a dedicated space for the wood chips actors to meet and discuss. Bioenergy Europe Working Group Wood Chips is the space where our Members and the Secretariat can actively exchange data, market trends, news in legislation and information on cutting-edge technologies.

Key topics

  • New sourcing areas for wood chips, challenges and opportunities
  • How to comply with EU RED II & the SURE Certification
  • Wood chips quality: suppliers and end-users meeting halfway
  • Next Working Group

    The next working group will take place on the 15th April 2020 and the topic of this working group will be:

    ‘Impacts of climate change on European forests and the consequences on the bioenergy sector.
