ETIP-B-SABS 2 Newsletter | July 2019   
ETIP Bioenergy

  The workshop “Paving the way towards clean energy and fuels in Europe” took place on Wednesday, 29th May 2019, in the framework of the 27th European Biomass Conference and Exhibition (EUBCE 2019) in Lisbon. The event was an initiative of the European Commission, in cooperation with the European Technology and Innovation Platform - ETIP Bioenergy, the European Energy Research Alliance - EERA Bioenergy, the Renewable Heating and Cooling (RHC) European Technology and Innovation Platform - ETIP (Biomass Technical Panel) and the SET Plan Action 8 EU Member States.

The workshop identified the research and the innovation needs as well as the roadmap for bioenergy and renewable fuels to make the EU industrial energy and transport sectors economically and environmentally sustainable, secure and competitive in the global markets.

In the morning, a session on R&I Policies and Programmes set the strategy framework as stated by European Commission and the associations of policy and industrial stakeholders.

After the first session, five roundtables offered the opportunity to show to the audience all the value chains of advanced biofuels, renewable fuels, intermediate bioenergy carriers and biomass-based cogeneration of heat and power. Each roundtable provided a quick overview of around 50 EU-funded projects in total, discussing the challenges and the solutions implemented by each project. The roundtables were followed by a final discussion identifying the most affordable process or technology solutions for real implications at impact level in the market.

The workshop registered the presence of more than 180 participants and started “paving the way” for the upcoming steps to make the SET Plan Action 8 a reality in Europe.



Benefit from valuable insights of high-level speakers, outstanding networking opportunities and gain the tools and knowledge to make a lasting impact on your future and organisation.
