Approximately 80% of the global primary energy demand is covered by (gas, oil and coal) fossil fuels.

Hydropower and traditional biomass and other modern forms of renewable energy to cover the remaining 20%

The contribution of renewable energy is reduced but vital to reduce the CO2 emissions generated in the combustion of fossil predecessors.

European Commission stimulates the development of second generation biofuels from lignocellulosic waste that emit less GHG

RESTOENE-2 has the potential and ability to scientific-technical of 5 research groups of the CM and complementary scientific infrastructure.


It is defined as a network of research groups recognized within the area of Energy, Biofuels, Electrochemical Catalysis and Chemical processes. The main objective is the study of obtaining power and liquid fuels from forestry and urban waste in clean fuels for transport and electricity generation. The network is promoted by the Comunidad de Madrid through the call for programs of activities of R+D between research groups and co-financed by the European Union through the European Social Fund.

ResToEne-2 consists of a total of five research groups belonging to the leading universities in the Community of Madrid: URJC, UAM and research institutions such as CSIC, CIEMAT, IMDEA Energy and RedLab (LABTE 165)
