IEA sees biofuels as main renewable fuel through 2022 despite increased EVs

October 4, 2017 |

In France, the International Energy Agency says in its new Renewables 2017 report that biofuels are expected to remain 90% of the renewable energy used in transport by 2022 despite a growing share of electric vehicles. Biofuel production is expected to grow 16% during the period as well with Asia taking the lead thanks to supportive policies and feedstock availability, but even so a concerted effort in policies globally could see that figure increase by another 13%. That best-case scenario, however, would only equate to 5% of transport fuel by 2022.
