Nov 27 2020

JRC scientists examined to what extent the currently carbon-intensive hydrogen production in Europe could be replaced by water electrolysis using electricity from renewable energy resources (RES) such as solar photovoltaic, onshore/offshore wind and hydropower (green hydrogen). The findings show that 88 out of 109 hydrogen-producing regions in the EU27 and the UK have abundant renewables resources and could cover both their current electricity needs and the additional power demand for hydrogen electrolysis.

The agriculture and food processing sectors generated three quarters (75%) of the EU bioeconomy employment in 2017.

A new brief prepared by the JRC for the European Commission’s Knowledge Centre for Bioeconomy (KCB) analyses the latest data on employment, value added and the turnover generated by different bio-based sectors of the EU bioeconomy.

The EU bioeconomy employed 17.5 million people in 2017 (EU-27), which represents 8.9% of the total labour force. It also created up to EUR 614 billion of value added, which represents 4.7% of GDP.
