The accelerating climate crisis makes a transition to renewable energy more important than ever. Adding to this pressure is the extraordinary increase in fossil fuel prices due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. In light of this, the European Union has set out plans to increase targets of renewable energy production to enhance energy security under the REPowerEU plan. However, in Central and Eastern European countries, the majority of renewable energy is supplied by burning biomass and plans to expand renewable energy will likely involve expanding biomass energy even further.

This report sets out the current status of biomass energy production in Hungary, the science behind why it is unsustainable, and suggestions for a greener way forward.
