SBP Receives Formal Recognition as a Voluntary Scheme under REDII

SBP Receives Formal Recognition as a Voluntary Scheme under REDII

On 26 September, the European Commission published the legal text of SBP’s recognition under the 2018 Renewable Energy Directive (REDII). The Decision entered into force on the day following that of its publication in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU), and so became effective as of 27 September.



SBP Receives Formal Recognition as a Voluntary Scheme under REDII

REDII lays down requirements for, amongst other energy sources, biomass, to ensure that it can be counted towards the targets set in the Directive only if it has been sustainably produced and saves significant greenhouse gas emissions compared to fossil fuels.

SBP is Europe’s largest independent certification scheme for woody biomass in large-scale industrial heat and power production, steps will now be taken to activate SBP’s systems to allow the scheme to be used to demonstrate compliance with REDII.

Recognition of SBP scheme does not mean biomass carrying an SBP claim is automatically REDII-compliant. Certificate Holders must take action to comply with SBP’s specific REDII requirements in order to be REDII-compliant.

SBP will host a webinar on 25 October 2022 for Certificate Holders and Certification Bodies to outline the REDII requirements and the actions to be taken to ensure compliance with REDII. Certificate Holders and Certification Bodies are invited to register for the webinar here.
