This briefing summarises the study's findings:
- In the EU reference scenario 2013 over 90% of realisable bioenergy potentials are exploited and only 35% of other renewables;
- The most cost-effective renewable energy mix in 2030 has a significantly lower share of bioenergy than the EU reference scenario 2013 and the GHG 40 and GHG40EE scenarios in the IA 2030;
- Governmental interventions are required to meet the most cost optimal mix;
- In most of the six selected member states trends are similar, although there are location and country-specific features.
