Directorate General for Energy and Transport Ep European Commission European Forest Research « Outlook for the Future » 12 November 2004 (Brussels) José Riesgo Villanueva – DG TREN unit D2 – ( Management of RTD Energy Progr.)
Directorate General for Energy and Transport European RES policy Targets To double the share of renewable energy from 6% to 12% in 2010 (currently 2/3 (56 Mio tons) of 6% is from Biomass/ waste- mainly Heat) of gross energy consumption To reduce greenhouse gas emissions (meet the commitments made by the EU under the 1997 Kyoto Protocol) To contribute to security of supply
Directorate General for Energy and Transport TREN Coherent Energy Actions Market development, Certification, Planning, Financing, Promotion Research, Development, and Demonstration of New Technologies Policies and Targets Legislation FP6 EIE
Directorate General for Energy and Transport Europe-30: (in mtoe) ConsumptionProduction Industry Transport Households, services The Basic Facts About Energy Energy self sufficiency is impossible to achieve An energy-intensive economy:consumption + 1 to 2%/ year Oil Natural gas Solid fuels Renewables Nuclear
Directorate General for Energy and Transport Energy Mix European Union energy mix 1998 Renewable energy still accounts for only a small fraction of the Community energy mix (EUROSTAT 2001) Mtoes
Directorate General for Energy and Transport The share of renewable energy in the EU Communication (2004) 366 final v Evaluation of the progress made by the EU15 towards achieving national RES-e targets for Assessment of the prospects for achieving the target of a 12% share of renewable energy in overall energy consumption in the EU15 in Proposals for concrete actions at national and Community level in the context of the Bonn World Renewable Energy Conference. Commissions Staff Working Document: Country Profiles - Overview of Renewable Energy Sources in the Enlarged European Union.
Directorate General for Energy and Transport Directives Directives Directive on the promotion of electricity from renewable energy sources in the internal electricity market (Dir 2001/77/EC) Directives on Liquid Biofuels mandate for a minimum use of biofuels and their de- taxation (Dir 2003/30/EC – Dir 2003/96/EC Directive on Combined Heat and Power( Dir 2004/8/EC)Target: doubling the share of CHP from 9% (1994) to 18% (2010) Special provision for renewables.
Directorate General for Energy and Transport Biomass Exploitation Study « Bioenergy Role in the EU Energy Market – A view of development until 2020 » Biomass overall availability in EU 25 : Mtoe Wood (refined residues): 27 Mtoe Solid Agriculture (residues): 36 Mtoe Solid Industrial: 14 Mtoe Wet/ dry manure : 17.5 Mtoe Biodegradable Munic. Waste: 23.5 Mtoe Demolition wood: 6.5 Mtoe Black liquor: 11.5 Mtoe Sewage gas: 2.5 Mtoe
Directorate General for Energy and Transport Tools to support take up of Bioenergy 2. The Intelligent Energy Europe Programme The main objective is to fill the gap between demonstration & commercialisation 1. The VI th Framework Programme Aim to integrate & Strengthen European R&D. Budget of 17,5 Bn ( ) – 800 Mio for Sustainable E Thematic Priority: Sustainable Development, Global Change & Ecosystems: includes: - Clean and renewable energies including biomass - Alternative fuels including biofuels
Directorate General for Energy and Transport Intelligent Energy Europe SAVE ALTENER STEER COOPENER RES-Electricity RES-Heat Small Scale RES Applications Alternative fuels and vehicles Policy measures for and efficient use of energy in transport Strengthening the knowledge of local management agencies in the transport field Multiplying success in buildings Retrofitting of social houses Innovative approaches in industry Transforming the market: Energy Efficient Equipment and Products Create an enabling policy and legislative environment for energy services in developing countries Strengthen local energy expertise and build human capital in the developing countries Vertical key actions to tackle non-technological barriers
Directorate General for Energy and Transport Provide analysis of Forest Resources (for energy/ wood Processing ind.) Develop techno-economical analyses to support BioE sector Study/ develop mechanisms to mobilise forest actors (need to increase sustainable exploitation of resources) Develop demo. Projects for cost effective supply of wood Proposals
