The Contribution of Advanced Renewable Transport Fuels to the Decarbonisation of Transport in 2030 and beyond

18. November 2019
Albert Borschette Conference Centre, Rue Froissart 36, 1040 Etterbeek, Brussels, BE

The European Commission Directorate General for Energy has been supporting an International Energy Agency (IEA) study on this topic carried out by two IEA Technology Collaboration Programmes, IEA Bioenergy TCP and the IEA Advanced Motor Fuels TCP. The workshop will present the findings of this project focusing on country-specific analysis of Germany, Finland, Sweden, USA and Brazil.


The IEA Bioenergy TCP & The Advanced Motor Fuels (AMF) TCP

Content Description

The analysis is based on these countries´ key strategies for decarbonisation, and on the availability of conventional and advanced renewable transport fuels. From the current status of the vehicle fleet and fuels in use in each of the assessed countries, probable compositions of the national vehicle fleets in 2030 are estimated, and the gap to be filled between national targets and national projections is identified.

In the course of the analysis, the team of experts also reveals country-specific barriers to the implementation of advanced renewable transport fuels, identifies policy gaps and develops recommendations to policy makers how to overcome these gaps and prepare the path for the successful market introduction of both advanced renewable transport fuels and electric vehicles.

The IEA Bioenergy TCP is an international platform of cooperation working in the framework of the IEA ́s Technology Collaboration Programmes. IEA Bioenergy’s vision is to achieve a substantial bioenergy contribution to future global energy demands by accelerating the production and use of environmentally sound, socially accepted and cost-competitive bioenergy on a sustainable basis, thus providing increased security of supply whilst reducing greenhouse gas emissions from energy use.

The Advanced Motor Fuels (AMF) TCP also is an international platform of cooperation working in the framework of the IEA ́s Technology Collaboration Programmes. AMF ́s vision is that advanced motor fuels, applicable to all modes of transport, significantly contribute to a sustainable society around the globe. AMF brings stakeholders from different continents together for pooling and leveraging of knowledge and research capabilities in the field of advanced and sustainable transport fuels.
