RENEWABLE FUELS AND BIOENERGY FOR A LOW-CARBON EUROPE – ACCELERATING THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE SET-PLAN ACTION 8

Project description

Paving the way to clean energy

Bioenergy is significant in order to meet EU renewable energy targets in 2020 and beyond. It also helps to ensure GHG emission reduction, security of energy supply and economic growth, in particular in rural areas. The Implementation Plan (IP) of Action 8, Bioenergy and Renewable Fuels for Sustainable Transport, describes the research and innovation (R&I) activities aimed at achieving the strategic targets adopted in the SET Plan Declaration of Intent (DoI), agreed in December 2017 by the representatives of the European Commission services, SET Plan countries and stakeholders most directly involved in the respective sectors. The EU-funded SET4BIO project will propose solutions and ways to overcome essential barriers identified in the IP8. It will coordinate key stakeholders and promote the best development practices.

Objective

Bioenergy is the main source of renewable energy today and it is expected to continue playing a key role in the decarbonisation of the European energy and transport sectors, a prerequisite to achieve the long-term targets of the EU, the Paris Agreement and sustainable development goals. The Implementation Plan of Action 8, Bioenergy and Renewable Fuels for Sustainable Transport (IP8) set detailed targets for the development, demonstration and scale-up of the sector. In order to achieve a step-change, six complementary stakeholders engaged in bioenergy and renewable fuels, joined forces to enable successful implementation within SET4BIO. The overall objective of SET4BIO is to support the full execution of the IP8, i.e. both for research and innovation lines and large-scale projects, acting as competence centre and complementary resource for the Implementation Working Group (IWG8). Industry, academia, institutes, EU Member States and Associated Countries as well as the European Institutions and functions play a key role for successful implementation of IP8. SET4BIO will propose solutions and pathways to overcome essential barriers identified in the IP8 and will engage and coordinate key stakeholders through a participatory approach. The project will identify and promote best practices for development, demonstration and scale-up through a competition-based innovation approach, monitor development, develop a financing roadmap as well as provide policy recommendations and disseminate results. A wide-ranging network must strive towards the same goal and SET4BIO will facilitate the coordination. Several beneficiaries are involved in the IWG8 set up by the European Commission. Commitment and understanding of SET-Plan ambitions on Industry and Member State/Associated Country level will be crucial to the successful implementation. SET4BIO will take an active role in supporting IWG8 and be a catalyst to facilitate the implementation of the actions which are set out in the IP8.
