European Technology and Innovation Platform – Support of Advanced Bioenergy Stakeholders 2016-17

The previous European Biofuels and Technology Platform (EBTP) and the European Industrial Bioenergy Initiative (EIBI) are currently merging into the new European Technology and Innovation Platform Bioenergy (ETIP Bioenergy). The ETIP Bioenergy expands its scope of key issues from biofuels to all areas that cover the deployment, technology development and commercialization of advanced biofuels and bioenergy in Europe. The project aims to connect and support all stakeholders coming from industry, politics, research and development. Furthermore, the ETIP Bioenergy seeks to be a productive platform facilitating exchange and sharing up-to-date knowledge on latest developments and innovations.

The project is strongly connected to the European Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan) and strives to support the decarbonization of the European energy system and to coordinate those efforts throughtout Europe.         

Key objectives of the project are to facilitate

  • contributions to the SET-Plan activities and strategy, e.g. on renewable energy integration, technology cost reduction and upscaling;
  • defining priorities, strategies, R&I investment decisions and programmes;
  • collaboration between stakeholders in addressing energy system integration challenges;
  • identification of technical and non-technical barriers to the delivery of innovation to the energy market;
  • assistance to the European Commission and Member States in defining the research programmes, financial instruments, and addressing the mentioned barriers

for the area of advanced biofuels and bioenergy.

Building on a 10 years track of support to EBTP, the ETIP Bioenergy-SABS project will aim at an increased cohesion of bioenergy stakeholders by motivating discussion and interaction on hot topics related to advanced and innovative bioenergy. Key instruments to achieve this aim will be the ETIP Bioenergy website, factsheets, reports, newsletters and networking events at different scales. The project will compile scientifically sound, fact based information on technical and non-technical bioenergy issues.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 727509.

The ETIP Bioenergy-SABS project is coordinated by the Agency for Renewable Resources (FNR). The project consortium further comprises Bioenergy 2020+ from Austria, the Central European Initiative (CEI) and ETA Florence Renewable Energy (both coming from Italy).

Duration of the project: 01.09.2016 - 31.08.2018
