EUSTAFOR’s input to the EC Roadmap on EU renewable energy rules – review

Under the European Green Deal framework, the European Commission (EC) launched a public consultation on the roadmap on the review of the EU renewable energy rules. Accordingly, the Commission has committed to stronger action on climate change and will assess how the EU’s greenhouse gas emissions could responsibly be reduced by at least 50% to 55% by 2030.

The review will:

  • assess how far EU renewable energy rules (Directive 2018/2001/EU) can contribute to a higher EU climate ambition;
  • explore how to accelerate the transition to a more integrated energy system as outlined in the energy system integration & hydrogen strategies.

In this regard, EUSTAFOR has summited its input to the roadmap, in which EUSTAFOR address the following two important aspects of this initiative:

  • the importance of renewable biomass as a source of bioenergy, and
  •  the announced possible revision of the REDII and the sustainability criteria for bioenergy therein.

Please read the full input of EUSTAFOR here.

The input is also published on the EC’s website.
