ESWET’s comments on the review of the Renewable Energy Directive
ESWET welcomes the European Commission’s public consultation on the review of the Renewable Energy Directive (Directive (EU) 2018/2001).
ESWET would like to highlight the role that Waste-to-Energy can play in the transition to a carbon-free society, in particular with regards to the provision of reliable renewable energy and the prevention of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
To this aim, the paper describes several topics where Waste-to-Energy contributes to the energy transition:
- Waste-to-Energy – A stable source of renewable energy
- Waste-to-Energy – A key actor in energy and material recovery
- Waste-to-Energy – Essential in avoiding methane release from landfills
- Waste-to-Energy – A solution for reliable low-carbon fuel
- ESWET’s recommendations
