The results of the project 4Biomass are presented during a conference on 21st and 22nd of March 2012 in Berlin. Policy makers, stakeholders and investors are invited to discuss the political frameworks for bioenergy in Central Europe.
In the year 2010 the Members States of the EU submitted their national Renewable Energy Action Plans (nREAPS) to the Commission. They show how the Member States intend to reach their national targets for the share of renewable energy sources.
The 4Biomass project supports the efforts of the Central European countries to implement bioenergy policies that follow specifications of their nREAPs. Based on the results of the project, the 4Biomass partners support bioenergy development and deployment in the CE region as a complementary renewable source to wind, solar and hydro power.
The Central Europe countries have a good or even tremendous biomass potential. Though, biomass is limited and should be used in the most efficient way. Biomass is a regional source and should preferably be deployed in de-centralized systems. Stakeholders in the CE see biomass as the most important resource to reach the targets of the nREAPs until the year 2020.
During the first day of the conference, the speakers will present the national REAPs and in the CE countries used implementation measures and possible implementation constraints. In a panel the need for a coordinated Central European bioenergy policy for reaching the European Union 20-20-20 targets is discussed.
The second day is dedicated to sustainable bioenergy investments in CE. 4Biomass project partners will present demo projects from Central Europe. During the panel successful ways to support sustainable bioenergy projects will be further discussed by project partners and speakers of the morning.
