Lawsuit against the EU questions the inclusion of wood biomass as ‘renewable energy’

Lawsuit against the EU questions the inclusion of wood biomass as ‘renewable energy’

A group of plaintiffs from Estonia, France, Ireland, Romania, Slovakia, Sweden, and the US are filing a lawsuit against the European Union on Monday (4 March) to challenge the inclusion of forest biomass in the bloc’s renewable energy directive. If the case is won, wood biomass will no longer be counted in the EU’s 2030 target for renewables.

If they get their way, this could deprive the EU of an energy source which currently makes up close to 60% of the bloc’s renewables, more than solar and wind power combined.
