Woody Biomass for Energy: NGO Concerns and Recommendations

The European Commission recently consulted on its preparation of a report on additional sustainability measures at EU level for solid and gaseous biomass used in electricity, heating and cooling. This consultation failed to ask the right questions or to create the right framework for a meaningful debate on biomass, despite the urgent need for such a debate. Eleven NGOs therefore produced the report “Woody biomass for energy: NGO concerns and recommendations” as complementary input into this debate.
