About the Working Group

The Working Group Biopower & CHP was established in 2017 in order to promote the Biopower sector (Power-only & CHP). Biopower has great potential and an important role to play in the development of the EU’s energy system with an increasing share of renewables. The WG offers the possibility to exchange and aims at defining Bioenergy Europe’s position on power related policies. These include the recent Market Design Initiative as well as biopower related issues under the new Renewable Energy Directive. The Working Group is open to all Bioenergy Europe members interested and willing to exchange on biopower.
