Comparison of Two Sustainability Frameworks: The EU Taxonomy and the Recast Renewable Energy Directive (RED2)

This new report, carried out by Jinke van Dam Consulting in the period from December 2020 to January 2021, on request by the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO), describes the similarities and differences between the EU Taxonomy and the RED2 for a number of aspects. Based on these findings, the report describes the possible consequences for, for example, investments or obtaining financing of biomass for energy-related projects.

The forms of bioenergy that fall within the scope of this project are:

  • Solid biomass for the production of electricity and heat
  • Biogas for the production of electricity and heat
  • Liquid and gaseous biofuels for transport
