The Renewable Energy Directive (RED) has set a general binding target for the European Union to derive 20% of its final energy and 10% of its transport fuels from renewable sources by 2020. It is expected that by 2020 biomass will make up 19% of total renewable electricity, 78% of total renewable heating/cooling, and 89% of total renewable energy in transport. However, there is some skepticism over the long-term sustainable supply of biomass without negative impacts and unfair competition with resources for food production.
This Special Issue aims to provide evidence-based information for biomass demand and supply dynamics in the EU27 states and give up-to-date answers to a number of concerns about the sustainable options for the European ‘biomass futures’.
