Project description

This project serves to support the European Commission in their reporting

requirements in the frame of the Renewable Energy Directive 2009/28/EC.

We will support the reporting on the progress in renewable energy, by providing the analytical basis for monitoring, assessing and evaluating the evolution of Member States in implementing the RES Directive. This assessment will be based on a detailed analysis of the progress reports submitted by each of the 27 EU Member States, complemented by additional sources and the extensive experience the consortium members have on all aspects addressed in Article 22.

We will support the reporting on the sustainability of biofuels, by deriving the origin of biofuels and their feedstock, subsequently evaluating environmental and social sustainability impacts along the supply chain and at the location of feedstock production, as well as quantifying indirect effects that take place via traceable displacement or via the international commodity market. We will analyse if and how countries are prepared to safeguard sustainability aspects through (enforcement of) legislation.
