IEEP in cooperation with the Institute for European Studies at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, kindly invites you to attend the upcoming environmental policy forum on the 6th of February dedicated to the reform of the 2014-2020 EU Cohesion Policy.
IEEP is carrying out a project which aim is to explore options and tools for the mainstreaming of climate change in the 2014-2020 EU Cohesion Policy and Connecting Europe Facility. This will be the topic of a policy dialogue workshop organised by IEEP on 1 February 2012.
The Renewables Obligation (RO) is the UK’s keynote policy for the support of renewable electricity; but currently it fails to reflect the diversity of bioenergy feedstocks. IEEP is calling on the UK government to amend the RO’s bands to allow elevated support – an ‘environmental bonus’ – for the most environmentally responsible bioenergy solutions.
