Events - Paving the way towards clean energy and fuels in Europe - 29 May 2019, Lisbon, Portugal

21 de março de 2019

This research policy workshop will focus on how to move forward the innovation chain in the EU for bioenergy, advanced biofuels and renewable fuels, contributing to the clean energy transformation in energy and transport, in line with the Strategic Development Goals and the EU Communication “Clean Planet for All”. For this purpose, the workshop will identify the research and innovation needs, the strategy and the roadmap for bioenergy, biofuels and renewable fuels to make the European industrial energy and transport sectors economically and environmentally sustainable, secure and competitive in the global markets.

The agenda will focus on the value chains of advanced biofuels, renewable fuels, intermediate bioenergy carriers and biomass-based cogeneration of heat and power. The entire innovation sequence will be discussed, from breakthrough technologies to applied research and demonstration, pre-commercial scale financing and market up-take support measures. Results from the entire portfolio of around 60 projects supported under the European Union’s Framework Programme Horizon 2020 – Secure, clean and efficient energy challenge will feed into the discussion.

The views of the engaged EU Member States and of research and industrial stakeholders will be an important additional contribution, to identify non-technological support pathways through new tools, research concepts, the mobilization of national actions, private engagement and financing mechanisms. The workshop will then report on the progress of the innovation chains, the effectiveness of pushing innovative solutions into the market and their broader penetration into the energy and transport mix. Policy recommendations based on project results, the Member States’ interests and plans, as well as the views of the stakeholders, will also be collected and reported.


The event will be free of charge upon registration through EUBCE user area.
