The European Union (EU) established a 20% target for renewable energy use in 2020 and a 10% target for renewables in the transport sector to be reached by 2020. Bioenergy, including solid biomass and waste, is expected to represent 60% of the EU’s renewable energy use and biofuels most of the 10% of renewable energy use in transport. Widely perceived as carbon neutral, new studies commissioned by BirdLife International, the European Environmental Bureau and Transport and Environment, suggest that these policies could be increasing emissions compared to fossil fuels. The results of these studies and their political implications will be presented and discussed at the European Parliament during the event.
