MUSIC publishes Pyrolysis White Paper

The MUSIC project supports market uptake of three types of IBCs by developing feedstock mobilisation strategies, improved cost-effective logistics and trade centres. The investigated IBCs include pyrolysis oil, torrefied biomass and microbial oil.

Always wanted to know what fast pyrolysis of biomass is and how it can be useful?
Want to know about the state of the technology and the applications?

MUSIC has published a White Paper on Fast Pyrolysis Bio-Oil (FPBO) where all this is explained. For more information on the content and highlights of this White Paper, please visit: https://www.music-h2020.eu/about-music/press-release-music-publishes-pyrolysis-white-paper/

SocialRES project coming to an end

The SocialRES project is finishing in December, after almost 4 years of activity aiming to foster energy democracy through social innovation and the active collaboration between cooperatives, aggregators of renewable energy and crowdfunding platforms. The project has provided a relevant contribution to answer how to start an energy transition, developed the European Energy Social Innovation Platform to empower and support professionals in the renewable energy sector and produced a Policy Brief with a set of recommendations for EU policymakers on how to better harness and support social innovation for energy transitions. In the last days of the project, many results will be released on the website. Stay tuned!

Kicking off the working group on Energy Efficiency and Buildings

The Coordination and Support Action (CSA) to support to the Implementation Working Group on Energy Efficiency in Buildings (IWG5) has started its activities on 1 September 2022.
The aim of IWG5 is to set out the measures required to achieve the energy efficiency targets in the building sector, identify ongoing projects, and propose new activities.

IWG5 members are composed of representatives of EU countries and associated countries, industrial stakeholders, non-governmental organizations, and research institutes. WIP Renewable Energies is one of the partners of the Coordination and Support Action (CSA) within the IWG5 and responsible for organizing annual study tours which aims to educate and inform the public about energy-efficient buildings and understand the related societal drivers.
