Impacts of Biofuels and Renewable Energy - Data Collection Report


WP4 Case studies

This report aims at providing an overview of possible macroeconomic and other impacts that increasing the share of biofuels and other renewable-energy sources could have. Since several studies have been conducted on these topics already, the project team’s work for this report took the form of desk research (as opposed to the case-study work done for other topic areas within CIRCULAR IMPACTS). The project team identified relevant studies in recent literature and collected their key findings into an integrated overview. Due to the importance of biological energy sources both in the EU renewable mix, as well as in the circular-economy framework, the team treated the impacts of these resources with particular interest.
