How to help decarbonise the energy sector by means of bioenergy
The 'Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda' (SRIA) of the EERA Joint Programme on Bioenergy aligns research efforts across borders and provides guidance for policymakers.
Biopower, bioheat and biofuels are able to provide significant benefits for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, increasing energy security and creating new opportunities for sustainable economic growth. Researchers from 36 organisations in 18 countries, organised in the EERA Joint Programme on Bioenergy, have published a 'Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda' on 21 March 2019. The agenda defines priorities and perspectives until 2030 and beyond to align national research, development and innovation efforts across borders and thereby unleash the full power of bio-based solutions in the energy transition.
In the document the importance of alignment with ETIP Bioenergy is stressed. This document will also provide additional guidance for the work carried out in the ADVANCEFUEL project. The EERA Bioenergy SRIA will provide a R&D oriented framework for ADVANCEFUEL’s investigations of sustainable biomass production for advanced biofuel production as well as for determining the needed innovations regarding the conversion technologies. This will further support the project for eventually delivering consolidated and market-oriented recommendations for facilitating the market roll-out of liquid, advanced fuels in Europe.
