Bioenergy Europe (formerly known as AEBIOM) is a European trade association open to national biomass associations and bioenergy companies active in Europe. It was founded in 1990 under the leadership of french senator Michel Souplet [fr] with the aim to promote energy generation from biomass - in all its forms: biopower, bioheat or biofuels for transport. Bioenergy Europe is the umbrella organisation of the European Pellet Council (EPC),[1] and the International Biomass Torrefaction Council (IBTC).[2]

Bioenergy Europe owns two international certifications for wood fuels. ENplus®, certifying wood pellets quality [3] and GoodChips®, aiming at guaranteeing wood chips and hog fuel quality.[4]


As a European trade federation, Bioenergy Europe governance is ensured by its members (see list below) and structured around a General Assembly, a Board of Directors and a Core Groups that decide on the strategic orientations and political lines of the organisation based on the advises of Bioenergy Europe's Working Groups and Secretariat.[5]
