BioEUParks project has been selected as one of the four success stories which will be showcased during the "Bioenergy in the EU: Converting policies into impacts" which will be held in Brussels in 6 October. This is the final event to present the results of the impact assessment performed in the tender "Review of bioenergy projects implemented under IEE II", which started in May 2015 and will end in November 2016. The scope of the tender is to assess the impact and achievement of the 47 bioenergy project supported under the European programme Intelligent Energy Europe in its second phase.
The event will foresee two Panel discussions involving representatives from DG Agriculture and Rural Development, DG Energy, DG Environment, DG Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs and DG Research and Innovation (RTD) are also foreseen. The European policy development in relation to bioenergy will be discussed, as well as how the outcomes of IEE II bioenergy projects could be useful to policy makers.
The aim of the event is to report the results of the above mentioned impact assessment, which are expected to be useful to EC policy makers to see how bioenergy market uptake actions can have an impact, what worked better, what are the main challenges and what can be the achievements. Furthermore the events will involve bioenergy stakeholders (e.g. biomass suppliers, bioenergy producers, biomass users from different competing sectors, etc.) who can draw lessons and hopefully replicate what worked well and act as multipliers of the impacts and achievements presented.
