CHP - Bioenergy EuropeSOLID BIOENERGY IN QUESTIONS GHG PM CHP In Europe, 83% of the overall final energy consumption on the continent is provided by fossil fuels1, mainly oil, coal and gas. Yet despite the uptake of renewable energies over the past decades, as the economic recovery in 2015 hasBioenergy Europe - Bioenergy EuropeBrussels, 04 March 2020 - Bioenergy Europe welcomes the European Climate Law enshrining the objective of climate neutrality by 2050 into law. Yet, a higher ambition and greater detail on the trajectory towards net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is crucial to achieve this objective.
Bioenergy Europe - Bioenergy EuropeBrussels, 08 September 2020 - Bioenergy Europe is pleased to announce the fourth chapter of its Statistical Report 2020 focusing on biomass for heat, highlighting the essential – yet neglected - role of the heating and cooling sector in 2050 European carbon neutrality.. The inherent link between the sector and European decarbonization has too often been overlooked.What is the EU Bioenergy Consumption? – European Bioenergy DayThe situation is the opposite in the traditional power generation industry from conventional thermal source. CHP plants represent only 28% whereas power only plants amount to 72% (Bioelectricity Report, 2020). This shows that bioenergy is actually an effective means to promote and further develop the use of modern and efficient CHP in Europe.Bioenergy Europe - Bioenergy EuropeBrussels, 15 October 2020 - Bioenergy Europe welcomes the overall tone of the Renovation Wave initiative but urges the deployment of coherent measures to ensure a faster phase out from fossil fuels combined with further market uptake of renewable solutions.. Buildings are responsible for about 40% of the EU&39;s energy consumption, with the largest share (80%) from the residential sector (heating Bioenergy Europe - Bioenergy EuropeBrussels, 17/09/2020 – Bioenergy Europe welcomes the increased ambition in the European Commission’s Communication on 2030 Climate Target Plan and the commitment to equip the transition with the correct tools to achieve it.
Bioenergy Europe - Bioenergy EuropeBrussels 23 October 2020 – Bioenergy Europe is pleased to announce the publication of the fifth chapter of its Statistical Report 2020 focusing on pellets highlighting the key contribution of the wood pellets to the EU sustainable recovery, and to the 2050 carbon neutrality target.. In 2019, the EU28 produced nearly 18 million tonnes (corresponding to about 7.6 Mtoe) of pellets, showing a Bioenergy Europe - Bioenergy EuropeSustainable bioenergy indeed represents a win-win solution: it is a readily available source of energy and green growth. Bioenergy represents the biggest share of RES in the EU accounting for almost 60% of renewable energy consumption and offers an undeniable positive effect on the environment with 7% GHG saved in 2017 in the EU.Bioenergy Europe - Bioenergy EuropeBioenergy Europe released its seventh and final chapter of its 2019 Statistical Report in December last year. The report focussed on the bioenergy landscape as a whole and provided the reader with a comprehensive overview on the general EU energy mix including: the different energy sources in EU28, the role of bioenergy, the type of biomass, the distribution in the different final sectors, the
