EU NATURE RESTORATION PLAN

Win-win solutions for energy generation

Updated on: 2021-12-09


Deadline: 2021

Summary: This action will be supported by the Implementing Act on REDII sustainability criteria for forest biomass (see 40) and the Revision of the 2018 renewable energy directive (see Action 38).

Deadline: 2021

Summary: The aim of this action is to apply win-win solutions that reduce emissions to the extent required by the EU's climate-neutrality goal for 2050, while promoting biodiversity preservation. The EU will prioritise solutions such as ocean energy or offshore wind which also allows for fish stock regeneration, solar-panel farms that provide biodiversity-friendly soil cover, and sustainable bioenergy. The main relevant instruments include the revision of the Renewable energy Directive (see Action 38), and the Implementing Act on Forest Biomass (see Action 40), the Offshore Renewable Energy Strategy and Guidance document on wind energy developments and EU nature legislation adopted in November 2020.

Summary: The objective of the Commission’s legislative proposals, delivered in June 2021 as part of the Fit for 55 package, is to ensure that the EU regulatory framework on bioenergy is in line with the increased ambition set out in the European Green Deal. The review of the Renewable Energy Directive (RED aims to reduce emissions to the extent required to reach the climate-neutrality goal for 2050, while promoting resource-efficient economic growth, job creation, technological leadership, pollution reduction and biodiversity preservation. The review of the Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) is driven by the 2030 climate ambition and 2050 long-term goal, while taking account of the need for just transition. The review of the LULUCF Regulation aims to align the regulatory framework to an EU-wide target to reduce emissions by 55% in 2030 while ensuring a just transition and taking into account synergies with other land-related sectors (agriculture, bio-economy), uses (nature-based solutions, closer-to-nature forestry) and policies. To this effect, the initiative aims to create stronger policy incentives that realise the EU’s potential to reduce land emissions, enhance substitution of fossil-based materials and enhance land-based sinks in the land use sector.
