Organisation profile

EBRI delivers World-class research into all aspects of bioenergy, ranging from fundamental research through development, to deployment of innovative technologies, in collaboration with industry.

The bioenergy industry is growing rapidly, driven by policies promoting the use of low carbon energy and waste recycling. Significant barriers to market exploitation remain for many renewable  technologies however, and further investment in R&D is necessary to achieve cost parity with non-renewable technologies.

EBRI acts as a focus for pan-European activities on scientific and technological aspects of biomass production, conversion and utilization of products used for renewable power, heat, transport fuels, hydrogen and chemicals.

EBRI is being funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) to develop a new centre of excellent in Bioenergy technologies and a focal point for supporting regional business with technology transfer and growth opportunities.

EBRI is leading an ambitious international project to promote the wider adoption of bioenergy in regions of North West Europe to reduce carbon emissions, increase energy security and employment opportunities.
