Sustainable biomass for heating

The study analyses the role of biomass in the transition of the EU heating sector. If fossil fuels for heating are replaced to a large extent by biomass, the risk increases that the potentials for sustainably available biomass are exceeded and that pressure on natural resources and the environment increases. In view of the current dominant role of biomass in renewable heating and the limited potentials for sustainable biomass, this report discusses the current use of biomass for heating and provides

recommendations for the provisions of the EU policy framework for heating with respect to its impact

on biomass use.
