Analysing Bioenergy Implementation in EU Member States: Results from the Biomass Futures Expert Survey
The EU has set itself ambitious goals to increase the share of renewable energy in its energy mix. By 2020, energy from renewable sources shall make up 20 per cent of gross final energy consumption in the EU according to the Renewable Energy Directive and bioenergy is expected to be a major contributor to this.
In this context Bettina Kretschmer and Sophie Bennett have prepared a detailed analysis of the outcomes of an expert survey that they conducted with representatives from mostly Member State public administrations in the context of the Biomass Futures project. The main aim of the expert survey is to identify in detail implementation challenges in relation to bioenergy policies, how these are overcome, and which research needs arise from these challenges.
This is one of a series of papers prepared under the Biomass Futures project
