    Keywords : Climate Policy; Climate Impacts; European Union; Bioenergy; Forest residues; Carbon dioxide; Radiative Forcing; Peat; EU ETS; Emissions Trading; Allocation; Incentives; Benchmarking;

    Abstract : The Europeans Union’s (EU’s) climate and energy strategy aims at reducing the emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) by 20 % (compared to 1990) and to increase the share of renewable energy to 20 % by the year 2020. Increased use of bioenergy is considered key in these efforts. READ MORE

  2. 2. Industrial energy efficiency improvement – the role of policy and evaluation
