OVERVIEW

The wider framework shaping biofuels development continues to evolve rapidly. Worldwide biofuels production and consumption is on the rise despite considerable swings in market conditions for feedstocks and end products. Policy & regulations supporting the development of biofuels are developing in many parts of the world. In the EU, the adoption of the Renewable Energy and Fuel Quality Directives in June 2009 was an important milestone.

These Directives set binding targets for renewable energies in the transport sector for the first time, and link them to mandatory sustainability requirements that address both GHG reduction and nature conservation criteria. In parallel, significant progresses towards implementation of the SET Plan and its Industrial Initiatives are ongoing, while industry and research actors are moving forward with ambitious R&D&D programmes on advanced biofuels, paving the way for the large industrial deployment needed to meet the ambitious 2020 EU targets.

The European Biofuels TP has developed its activities adjusting to this fast moving and complex context. Its contribution to shaping the European Industrial Bioenergy Initiative has been actively pursued, with an important milestone reached at the Stockholm SET Plan conference in October 2009. The scope of EBTP’s activities has been enlarged to cover new topics such as algae as a potential feedstock, and new downstream markets for biofuels, such as aviation and marine transport. 

Reflecting on the significant evolution of the wider market and regulatory framework and these new developments, EBTP has initiated the first update of its Strategic Research Agenda & Deployment Document (SRA/SDD), offering a timely perspective on the main challenges and priorities for biofuels R&D&D.

The core of EBTP‘s mission is to offer an open forum to all active stakeholders willing to contribute to the development of sustainable biofuels and competitive biofuels technologies. Gathering the wide spectrum of biofuels stakeholders, the 3rd Stakeholder Plenary Meeting is offering a timely opportunity to discuss the outcome of EBTP’s activities around EIBI and the update of the SRA/SDD. These discussions will provide a fresh perspective on how to boost the contribution of sustainable biofuels to EU 2020 targets.
