    The 9th Stakeholder Plenary Meeting of the European Technology and Innovation Platform Bioenergy (ETIP Bioenergy) confirmed the many opportunities already available today to use sustainable biomass for supporting the clean energy transition in Europe.

    After some years of hesitation, the sector is now showing concrete signals of a renewed commitment both with new commercial industrial initiatives and in research and innovation.

    One and a half year ago, at the previous stakeholder meeting, the discussion was still influenced by the uncertainties of the policy framework at that time. This year, with the REDII and the first delegated acts in place, it is very positive to see that technologies are finally getting to the market and new investments are starting to be announced, although some points of the legislation still need to be fine-tuned, said Patrik Klintbom, Chair of ETIP Bioenergy Steering Committee. There is a substantial amount of sustainable biomass available, the time for action is now and we need to bring all the technologies to the market. In order to succeed we must increase cooperation and join forces in research, innovation, scaling up and demonstration, he continued.
