Bioenergy recognized as a key contributor to achieve a climate neutral Europe by 2050

December 2, 2018 |

In Belgium, the European Commission published its long-term strategy for emissions reduction looking at different options to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% with more ambitious scenarios achieving a balance between greenhouse gas emissions and removals by 2050.

Bioenergy Europe released a statement that said it “is glad to see that bioenergy is put forward as one of the key solutions to achieve a net-zero carbon economy by 2050 and this in symbiosis with a wider bio-economy relying on a sustainable feedstock from forests and agriculture. Bioenergy has the potential to increase significantly within the limits of a sustainably available biomass potential and provides versatile and flexible technologies in the heating & cooling, transport and electricity sector including the possibility for negative emissions.”

“In its long-term strategy, the Commission recognises the importance of bioenergy to achieve a net-zero carbon economy by 2050. Now, we need a clear implementation roadmap for investments to take place, especially in the heating sector.”, Jean-Marc Jossart, Secretary-General of Bioenergy Europe explains.
