Event Description

During the AEBIOM Bioenergy Conference, AEBIOM dedicated one session to the Biomass Counts campaign which focused on biomass as a local and renewable solution for energy security.

The workshop which gathered more than 150 participants through live streaming and live presence, focused on how biomass can play an active role in reaching the EU’s energy security objectives, while tackling at the same time growth and climate change objectives.

Benedek Javór, member of the European Parliament presented the European Parliament initiative report on energy security mentioning that there is a clear lack of harmonization among EU energy policies and that the Initiative report bears too little attention to the important role of renewable energies such as biomass.

The event was reinforced by a factsheet which consists of facts and figures which support our statements.

This event was organized under the framework of the Biomass Counts Campaign, an initiative launched by the European Biomass Association (AEBIOM) to showcase the numerous benefits of biomass and highlight its key role in achieving EU’s objectives of economic growth, decarbonisation and energy dependency.
