The bio-energy markets for electricity, heat and fuel have performed a dynamic development over the last few years. In order to experience further market growth all existing and new biomass potentials have to be used for the expansion of the fuel markets. Thereby, a focus lies on short-rotation-coppice (SRC). Such a plantation can be described as a cultivation of fast-growing trees with the aim of producing wood as a renewable fuel resource within short rotation periods.

Since January 2010, a national network for the efficient production of renewable energy is established with the aid of the ttz Bremerhaven. The network aims at connecting appropiate protagonists in order to support this innovative field of research in Germany and to generate concrete requests and new projects for the network partners. The network has already been rewarded by the European Commission as an official partner of the "Sustainable Energy Europe" campaign and nominated for the award "Sustainable Demonstration Projects".

Within this campaign, a workshop for specialized journalists regarding the topic "Bioenergy of short-rotation-coppice" takes place on 23 March 2010.
