1st May 2014
Topic(s): Renewables, Biofuels / Bioenergy
The Institute for European Environmental Policy produced this report for BirdLife Europe, European Environmental Bureau, and Transport & Environment.
The focus of this report is on the potential for further energy crop production from dedicated crops in Europe on land not already used for food production, forestry, or other uses of social value, including nature conservation. There is already production of crops for energy purposes in Europe, including oilseed rape for biodiesel. But this report addresses how much additional production might be achieved, given the limitations in land availability that the authors have assumed.
