Paving the way towards clean energy and fuels in Europe

    Paving the way towards clean energy and fuels in Europe

    29 May 2017, 9-17u

    Lisbon, Portugal

    Workshop initiated by EC DG Research and ETIP Bioenergy

    Talks with research, industry and EU Member States on bioenergy, advanced biofuels and renewable fuels

    This research policy workshop focused on how to move forward the innovation chain in the EU for bioenergy, advanced biofuels and renewable fuels, contributing to the clean energy transformation in energy and transport, in line with the Strategic Development Goals and the EU Communication “Clean Planet for All”. For this purpose, the workshop aimed to identify the research and innovation needs, the strategy and the roadmap for bioenergy, biofuels and renewable fuels to make the European industrial energy and transport sectors economically and environmentally sustainable, secure and competitive in the global markets.

    The agenda focused on the value chains of advanced biofuels, renewable fuels, intermediate bioenergy carriers and biomass-based cogeneration of heat and power. The entire innovation sequence was discussed, from breakthrough technologies to applied research and demonstration, pre-commercial scale financing and market up-take support measures. Results from the entire portfolio of around 60 projects supported under the European Union’s Framework Programme Horizon 2020 – Secure, clean and efficient energy challenge will feed into the discussion. The views of the engaged EU Member States and of research and industrial stakeholders will be an important additional contribution, to identify non-technological support pathways through new tools, research concepts, the mobilization of national actions, private engagement and financing mechanisms.

    The workshop then reported on the progress of the innovation chains, the effectiveness of pushing innovative solutions into the market and their broader penetration into the energy and transport mix. Policy recommendations based on project results, the Member States’ interests and plans, as well as the views of the stakeholders, were also planned to be collected and reported.

    Participation is  free of charge for participants of the 2019 European Biomass Conference and Exhibition.
