Information
ENER/C2/2016-486.
A joint mapping platform for bioenergy, wind energy and PV issues.
The EU policy for climate and energy set targets of 20 % of renewable energy in the EU energy mix by 2020 and 27 % by 2030. The corresponding greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction targets are 20 % and 40 % respectively, with respect to 1990 levels. The European Union is promoting the use of renewable energy in transport to reach the objective of 10 % renewable energy in transport by 2020. The use of biofuels is one way of meeting these targets. These targets have been established by the Renewable Energy Directive (RED Directive) adopted in 2009.

Lots
Lot number Title Description
Lot 1 Bioenergy Bioenergy is a complex area of technology with several value chains and conversion technologies to convert biomass and waste fractions into energy vectors for power, heat or transport. The energy vectors can be solid (e.g. torrified wood), liquid (e.g. bioethanol or pyrolysis oils) and gaseous (e.g. biomethane or hydrogen). Numerous projects have been signed and are ongoing under FP7, H2020 and IEE with an emphasis in the last years on advanced biofuels. Furthermore, the biofuels can be used either for road, maritime or aviation transport. For each of these sectors different fuel quality specifications may apply making the production and utilisation of biofuels a very complex, but, highly innovative area. With regard to biofuels, the RED establishes a mandatory sustainability scheme for biofuels, which applies to all biofuels and their raw materials irrespective of whether they were cultivated and/or produced inside or outside the territory of the EU. The consignments of consumed biofuels must comply with the sustainability requirements in order to be allowed to be used for the below mentioned purposes, as set in Article 17(1) of Directive 2009/28/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council: (a) measuring compliance with the requirements of this Directive concerning national targets; (b) measuring compliance with renewable energy obligations; (c) eligibility for financial support for the consumption of biofuels and bioliquids. Efforts have been undertaken to provide structure and access to information in the area of bioenergy based on mapping platforms and 3 projects are in various stages of development. These are: Biomap: the Biomap information and dissemination tool was successfully developed under a FP7-funded project. It provides information on contracts in the area of bioenergy. Although it started with an emphasis on biofuels, it also included projects on other areas of bioenergy. The Biomap can be accessed at: www.biompalite.eu Biojet Map: the Biojet Map information and dissemination tool was successfully developed under various actions providing information on the use of biofuels in aviation. It can be accessed at: http://www.biojetmap.eu/#31080 BioResources Map: the BioResources Map aims to provide information on the actual production of biomass resources down to the individual field level and its sustainability characteristics. The work is still ongoing and the site is expected to be available by the end of September 2016. Therefore the tender for lot 1 should address the following: task 1: examine whether it is possible to join the Biomap, Biojet Map and BioResources Map into a single platform. This would help track the supply of biomass from all over the world to a specific plant operating in the EU; task 2: continue and improve the update of the Biomap and Biojet Map with new projects and information from all EU-funded programmes; task 3: continue and improve the update of the BioResources Map with new information and data on farm produce on a global scale.
Lot 2 Wind and PV Limited information on wind and PV projects can be found on Cordis for FP7 projects but this is considered inadequate for the dissemination of results of EU-funded projects. Task 1: develop a map for the wind projects that have been funded by the EU under the FP7, H2020 and IEE projects. The map should contain information on the project, consortium, aim and objectives, technology/instruments used, market uptake, status, etc. of all projects. Task 2: develop a map for the PV projects that have been funded by the EU under the FP7, H2020 and IEE projects. The map should contain information on the project, consortium, aim and objectives, technology/instruments used, market uptake, status, etc. of all projects. The maps for the wind and PV should have the same structure and features, they should therefore be based on the same type of data base but contain projects from the different sectors. They may be similar or different to the Biomap.
