EERA - CenBio Brokerage Event, Brussels, Belgium

A Workshop/brokerage event on bioenergy is co-organised by the European Energy Research

Alliance (EERA) JP Bioenergy and the Norwegian Bioenergy Innovation Center "CenBio".
Participants will have the opportunity to present project ideas, make new contacts and find project partners. The event targets a wide spectrum of researchers from European universities and research institutes, especially EERA JP Bioenergy and European Centers of Excellence, as well as industry stakeholders in the field of bioenergy. Do not miss this occasion!

The objectives of the workshop are:

• Facilitate initiation of new H2020 bioenergy project proposals within the new
SET-Plan Governance

• Mobilize and engage European Centers of Excellence in the establishment of new
H2020 bioenergy project proposals

• Strengthen cooperation between EERA JP Bioenergy and European Bioenergy
Centers of Excellence.

The calls for proposals to be discussed are within:

• Renewable electricity and heating/cooling (LCE 07)

• Advanced biofuels (LCE 06, LCE 08)

The H2020 Work Programme 2016-2017 - "Secure, Clean and Efficient Energy" is available here.

KSLA Seminar: Forests, Bioenergy & the Global Climate, Stockholm, Sweden

Forests, Bioenergy and the Global Climate

There is a wide consensus in the scientific community that energy systems, which rely on fossil fuels, are unsustainable. Wood-based solutions have been proposed as an alternative and gained wide support. However, disagreement exists among experts as to whether contemporary forest management as a source of wood-based alternatives is indeed sustainable. In February 2016 the journal Science published a paper stating that “Europe’s managed forests contribute to warming”, followed by a letter from eminent scientists to ten US senators in which they question the carbon neutrality of forest bioenergy. These publications contradict earlier views that are widely published in scientific literature and cited in, for example, the assessments of the Inter-Governmental Panel of Climate Change (IPCC).

In Europe, forest based biomass used to be generally viewed as sustainable, carbon neutral, and a solution to on-going climate change. The aforementioned recent publications suggest that the role of forestry in climate mitigation is much more limited than stated earlier. Given the importance of woody biomass in the energy production of Sweden and Finland, the new research received much public attention. How can this dispute be understood? Can the dispute be settled or do we need to adopt a new approach and strategy to forest management especially in light of the Paris Climate Agreement?
