  Add to Calendar 2020-01-28 14:30 2020-01-28 16:00 Europe/Paris The Achilles Heel of the EU's Climate Policy: The Promotion of Bioenergy as a Renewable Resource

The EU relies for around 45 per cent on the use of forest biomass for its renewable energy consumption. The aim of this talk is to present the policy background and development of this form of renewable energy, and discuss its main advantages and drawbacks, including its impact on the climate, resource efficiency, environmental protection and its effect on competition. The speaker will reflect on the SDGs, the Paris Agreement, the EU's long term climate strategy and the adequateness of the new EU Climate- and Energy Package for the period 2021-2030 in this regard and discuss the relevance of an effective state aid regime. This talk is an opportunity for all interested in climate change mitigation, renewable energy policies, environmental law and the (fair) use of natural resources to discuss and reflect on the reliance on land and biomass resources for climate change mitigation purposes.
