The promotion of bioenergy is a top priority on the political agenda of the EU and most member states. However, the progress in terms of actual market deployment is still dissatisfactory. Many of the existing market barriers have their origin in insufficient policy frameworks on the national level. Recent policy initiatives aim at overcoming these barriers, including the European Biomass Action Plan (BAP). The process of developing country-specific BAPs is the starting point for this project. Its aim is to foster an integrated view of policy makers on biomass promotion and to leverage the formulation and implementation of consistent national biomass strategies and action plans in EU member states, thus, help fulfilling the European BAP.
In this page:
- Best practice study including a cross-country and benchmark analysis to assess current biomass strategies across the EU.
- Operational guideline for the development of balanced national biomass strategies & action plans.
- National position papers as a direct contribution to national biomass action plan processes and a European position paper reflecting key conclusions from the best practice report, the guideline and the outcomes of the thematic working groups.
- It is important to clearly show the background situation of best practice examples to allow a decision on transferability.
- Coordination of different policy fields and harmonisation of Member States legislation is vital for effective biomass strategies.
- Project work needs to be flexible enough to adapt to current issues and changes such as the development of the RES Directive.
