International Expert Workshop


Workshop on Renewable Fuels

Worldwide, the demand for renewable fuels for sustainable mobility is increasing enormously. In the last 20 years, production could be expanded to about 4 EJ of renewable fuels. According to scenarios of IRENA and IEA, by 2050 it must be about 3.2 to 5.8 EJ; on average a tenfold of today's production. Experts from IEA Bioenergy TCP Task 39 and IEA AMF, as well as representatives from Germany, presented their views and invited to a joint discussion.

The international expert workshop "Ten times more renewable fuels" took place in October 2023 at the DBFZ (Deutsches Biomasseforschungszentrum) in Leipzig, Germany.
