Final recast of EU Renewable Energy Directive

As part of its ‘Clean Energy for all Europeans’ package, the European Commission in 2016 proposed an update of the Renewable Energy Directive for the period 2021 – 2030 (RED II). A final compromise document was agreed among EU Institutions on June 14, 2018. This policy update provides an overview of the provisions relating to transport fuels in the final compromise document.

There is a sub-target for advanced biofuels produced from feedstocks in Part A of Annex IX. These fuels must constitute a minimum of 0.2% of transport energy in 2022, 1% in 2025 and at least 3.5% by 2030. The RED II defines sustainability criteria for liquid biofuels used in transport, as well as for solid and gaseous biomass fuels used for power, heating and cooling production.
