Task 4.5 - Final Report

Final Report of Task 4.5 Pilot Projects: being one of the central works of Bioenergy Promotion, Task 4.5 is about the identification and description of Pilot Projects within the subregions. These projects range from the mere planning stage to the improvement of fully implemented ventures. This reflects the level of development of the bioenergy sector in the according subregions and gives valueable information about the regional market extension. The partners provided bioenergy assessments, the pilot projects themselves, prefeasibility studies and additional information for investors. The final report is a compilation of these outputs providing compact information about the subregions and general conclusions about the situation in the Baltic Sea Region. The Final Report was elaborated by BioenergieBeratung Bornim - B3 GmbH on behalf of the Potsdam Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

EU Biofuels Target Borderline Sustainable - Report

Going beyond a 5.6% share of biofuels in transport fuel could harm the environment, found a new report made public by the European Commission yesterday (25 March), suggesting that the EU's current target is only borderline sustainable. The report, compiled for the Commission by the International Food Policy Institute (IFPRI), concludes that indirect land-use change has "an important effect on the environmental sustainability of biofuels". Nevertheless, it argues that current EU renewable energy targets are small enough to safeguard the environmental sustainability of biofuels.
