We are getting ready for this year’s largest regional conference in the bioenergy sector. The opening day, 29 March, will focus on market development and the current political framework, in EU and in the Nordic and Baltic countries. Programme highlights:
Electricity prices have been at a very low level for a long period, but the price has been rising in the autumn. Are low electricity prices here to stay? How do the other renewables, wind and solar, that are increasingly entering the market affect the bioenergy sector? Where are we going with the investments in the bioenergy sector?
Policy and incentives
Last year was a super-year regarding EU-policy making on bioenergy. First, the Commission proposed a LULUCF legislation in July. In November, the Commission introduced its Winter package that contains the new RES Directive, the new electricity market directive and the sustainability criteria for solid and gaseous biomass. In the first half of 2017, the Commission will propose legislation on low-emission mobility.
How will all this affect the market and what can we now expect from the governments, and from the EU decision-making? What incentives can be used to promote bioenergy, and how could they be improved?
