A climate-neutral EU by 2050 is at the heart of the European Green Deal (EGD). An important milestone will be a revised and more ambitious 2030 EU climate target, which in turn will require the European Commission to present revisions of all relevant climate and energy legislations, including the Renewable Energy Directive (RED).
Forest-based bioenergy – consisting primarily of wastes and residues from forestry and forest industry, such as tops and branches, sawdust, and bark – are the main sources of EU bioenergy.
Important aspects to address are for instance:
- How do we approach and assess different types of forest bioenergy sources?
- What is the role for forest-based bioenergy in reaching multiple European Green Deal objectives?
- To what extent will the existing criteria assure sustainable forest-based bioenergy in the future?
- How can we assure predictability and transparency for investors?
