Abstract: This document contains the Proceedings of the Expert Consultation "Short Rotation Forestry, Short Rotation Coppice and perennial grasses in the European Union: Agro-environmental aspects, present use and perspectives" held in Harpenden, United Kingdom, on 17 and 18 October 2007. This meeting was jointly organised by the Joint Research Centre - Institute for Environment and Sustainability and the European Environment Agency in cooperation with Rothamsted Research, United Kingdom. The cultivation of Short Rotation Coppice (SRC), Short Rotation Forestry (SRF such as poplar, eucalyptus or willow...) and perennial grasses (such as miscanthus...) for heat and power generation is often considered to be an opportunity for agricultural diversification, while at the same time contributing to environmental protection and a greater independency from imports for energy. The main topics of this Expert Consultation dealt with 1) SRC/SRF and perennial grasses in the EU: the implementation stage, 2) SRC/SRF in the European Union: agro-environmental aspects and 3) SRF/SRC: Status of research and perspectives.
