Biomass Workshop Series 2020-21: REDII Implementation and Beyond

 

Exploring REDII implementation and delivering good woody biomass

The impending implementation of REDII by Member States and the recently launched review of REDII raises the profile of the role of woody biomass in achieving climate goals, and how sustainability of biomass should be defined and applied in practice.

In parallel to the policy discussion and its evolution, biomass producers and forest owners strive to deliver legal and sustainable woody biomass (‘good biomass’) to the EU Member States.

This series of online workshops aims to reach key stakeholders and contribute to the dialogue on how sustainable biomass is defined, what REDII implementation looks like in practice and how to ensure good biomass is supplied and used in a way that contributes to climate goals.

Participation in the workshops is free of charge, but places are limited. Use the links below to register and secure your place.

Who’s talking?

The Workshop Series will bring together stakeholders with a range of interests and backgrounds to collectively share solutions on defining, delivering and using good biomass as part of the renewable energy mix. The events will showcase unique perspectives from scientists, environmental and social practitioners, EU policy makers and Member State regulators, energy generators, biomass producers, and both large and small forest owners as they discuss the implementation of REDII and beyond.

The events will be facilitated by Dirk Hulverscheidt using workshop platform tool, Howspace, to enable interaction between presenters and participants.
