As of July 2021, EU Member States should have transposed the Renewable Energy Directive into national legislation, which mandates that biomass and bioenergy producers demonstrate compliance with the sustainability requirements.
Where are we with the implementation of the REDII criteria? As of April, only a limited number of the 27 Member States have fully implemented the Directive, although others are expected to follow shortly.
To shed light on the complex situation facing the European bioenergy industry, Bioenergy Europe and Bioenergy International magazine are hosting a public webinar on 9 June, 15:00-17:00 CEST, to provide practical guidance on the next steps of the REDII implementation.
During the webinar, you will receive a quick refresher of the REDII sustainability requirements for solid biomass and get updated on the implementation status across the EU27. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss specific national issues with experts in dedicated breakout rooms (for a selection of EU countries). Speakers will also touch upon the state of play of the REDIII negotiations.
The webinar will be interactive and take questions from the audience. It will also hear from companies about their experience and challenges in implementing these criteria, and will explore the various ways to demonstrate compliance with the sustainability requirements.
