Biomass Energy Europe – BEE

The Biomass Energy Europe (BEE) project was initiated to harmonise methodologies for biomass resource assessments for energy purposes in Europe and its neighbouring countries. The harmonisation will improve consistency, accuracy and reliability of biomass assessments for energy, which can serve the planning of a transition to renewable energy in the European Union.

The major focus of the project has been on methodological and dataset harmonisations fostered by ongoing research of a multidisciplinary team of project participants, and on the opportunities of utilising both earth observation and terrestrial data for biomass assessments and the integration of multiple data sources. The relevant sectors that have been investigated are forestry, energy crops, residues from traditional agriculture and waste.

The project was carried out during 2008 - 2010. 

CEUBIOM, the "twin project" of BEE, works on classification of European biomass potential for bioenergy using terrestrial and earth observations. More information can be found at the CEUBIOM website.

BEE project is funded by the European Commission under the Framework Programme 7 within the "Energy Thematic Area" and contributes to "Harmonisation of biomass resource assessment" activities which focus on assessing and optimising the availability of biomass resources. GRANT AGREEMENT N° 213417
