Bioenergy has the highest contribution to the generation of renewable energy addressing all three energy vectors: the supply of electricity, heating/cooling and biofuels for transport. The global demand for biomass sources for energy purposes is expected to increase significantly. This study's objective is to provide a basis upon which the Commission's Services could decide which actions to undertake in view of proposing minimum sustainability criteria and certification systems for the production of biomass in the EU and for imported biomass. The approach is based on analysis of existing certification systems and initiatives towards biomass certification.
