REA frustrated by UK’s lack of support for sustainable biofuels

May 6, 2014 |

In the UK, REA is frustrated by the lack of concrete measures to improve the policy framework for sustainable biofuels in Government decisions published last week. In responses to two important consultations, the DfT proposed a limited set of changes to the Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation (RTFO) and stopped short of outlining how it will meet its binding 10% 2020 renewable transport target. The current RTFO obligation level is set at 4.75% by volume, or approximately 3.5% by energy, so a nearly three-fold increase in biofuel supply is needed by 2020. But in these documents the DfT again fails to set out how the RTFO obligation level will increase towards the 2020 target.
