SET4BIO aims to make a step change in the development of a cost-competitive bioenergy and renewable fuels market in Europe and globally, as foreseen by the Energy Union and by the Integrated Strategic Energy Technology (SET) Plan, endorsed by EU Member States and SET Plan Associated Countries.
AN IMPACTFUL STRATEGY
SET4BIO’s strategy has been designed around three pillars: activating the stakeholders, mobilising resources, and stimulating innovation.
INDUSTRIES AND MEMBER STATES INVOLVED TOGETHER
To achieve the targets provided by the Implementation Plan of Action 8, SET4BIO strives for direct involvement of both industrial stakeholders and the Member States representatives. In cooperation with , which acts as an anchoring point, SET4BIO supports the Implementation Working Group of Action 8 (IWG 8) by acting as a competence centre, adopting a participatory approach to engaging with its stakeholders, and promoting best practices for the development and the scale-up of bioenergy and renewable fuels technologies.
FINANCING ROADMAPS AND FUNDING INSTRUMENTS
The project aims to outline a roadmap to finance the bioenergy and renewable fuels projects outlined in the Implementation Plan of Action 8. All the available funding instruments for this purpose will be identified and mobilised by activating and coordinating private and public actors, in addition to Member States of the European Union, in a concentrated effort to assemble resources.
SET4BIO will launch Innovation Challenges for getting hold of new business models, technologies and processes supporting the decarbonisation of the European transport sector through the use of renewable fuels and bioenergy. Brokerage events and additional initiatives will also be organised to bridge the gap between R&I results and industry applications, both in SET Plan countries and globally. Policy recommendations will be collected and inputs will be shared to a broad public of experts and citizens.
