RED II: Alliance discusses implementation and instruments for the market development of powerfuels

The European Union’s revised Renewable Energy Directive (RED II) sets a clear signal for member states: by 2030, at least 14% of the final energy consumed in the transport sector in each member state must be renewable. With this event, we would like to present our position paper and proposal for the elaboration and implementation of these criteria. We cordially invite you to actively participate in the discussion.

Powerfuels - gaseous and liquid fuels from Power-to-X processes that draw their energy content from renewable electricity - will be an essential and indispensable part in the European transition towards a renewable energy system. In particular, they will play an important role in reaching renewable energy and greenhouse gas reduction targets in the transport sector.
To this end, the European Union’s revised Renewable Energy Directive (RED II) sets a clear signal for member states: by 2030, at least 14% of the final energy consumed in the transport sector in each member state must be renewable.
With this event, we would like to present our position paper and proposal for the elaboration and implementation of these criteria. We cordially invite you to actively participate in the discussion.

  • What are the options to fulfil the 14% transport target in the EU?
  • What is the status quo of the directive’s implementation across member states?
  • Which instruments can stimulate a market development of powerfuels within the RED II and through its transposition into national law?
