Fuelling tomorrow’s transport

The debate about transport fuels decarbonisation is a key issue in the ongoing recast of the Renewable Energy Directive (RED II). The EU has a unique opportunity to design a framework that will drive the most sustainable alternative fuels in transport for the period 2020-2030 and beyond.

The event is kindly co-hosted by Christine Revault d'Allonnes-Bonnefoy (S&D), Nils Torvalds (ALDE) and Claude Turmes (Greens/EFA).

Until now, the debate about transport fuels decarbonisation has been heavily polarised and mainly focused on 1st generation biofuels and the issue of Indirect Land Use Change emissions (ILUC). This event will be an opportunity to shed the light on other forms of advanced alternative fuels, especially electricity and biofuels from wastes and residues, their sustainability and their place in the new RED.

The event will feature a keynote speaker from the Energy Commission in California - Janea Scott - who will present the Californian market situation and regulation regarding transport fuels. The debate will gather Members of the European Parliament as well as speakers from the European Commission (speaker TBC), Pete Harrison from the European Climate Foundation and Johan Peeters from the ABB group.
