Updating the Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Biofuels and Bioenergy in Annexes V and VI of the Renewable Energy Directive II: An Overview.

Short Introductive summary

The Renewable Energy Directive 2018/2001 (REDII) sets the scene for a legal framework until 2030 regarding the renewable energies’ development across all the EU economy. Two annexes provide typical and default greenhouse gas (GHG) emission values for liquid biofuels (Annex V) and for solid and gaseous biomass for power and heat production (Annex VI), which can be used by operators to assess their GHG emissions savings. Along with the latest policy developments, JRC provided proposals for the update of the GHG emissions from biofuels and bioenergy pathways, including new relevant ones. All updates and changes have been made for both the Annexes V and VI of the RED. The objective of this work is to: i) Present the main changes introduced regarding the input values, the new assumptions and the new pathways; ii) Highlight the most relevant pathways from the market perspective; iii) Present a comparative analysis of the GHG emissions for most relevant pathways.
