20190113 NEa report on checked-in biofuels in 2017
The NEa is obliged to yearly report on the nature, origin and sustainability aspects of the checked-in renewable transport fuels. Recently, the NEa published its report for 2017 that is related to individual fuel suppliers. This report is different from the aggregated report that is published around summer that describes many details about the feedstocks.


20190104 IEA report regarding the impact of biofuels on air quality
The International Energy Agency published a report that shows the impact of biofuels on the air quality and shows the potential of biofuels regarding air pollution and emissions. The report states that fuel choice is important looking at air pollution, but should be nuanced for modern cars. The report contains specific conclusion on the effects of ethanol, biomethane, FAME and HVO on NOx, VOCs and PM.


20181210 Report states that biofuels and bioproducts are required to meet GHG goals
A report released by the Biofuture Platform on Dec. 10 states that the world’s greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction goals cannot be met without greater use of biofuels and bioproducts. The report also describes several barriers impeding future progress in the sector. The report can be downloaded here.


20181115 ICCT Report Analysis of high and low indirect land-use change definitions in European Union renewable fuel policy
This study summarizes published literature on observed land use change impacts of biofuel feedstocks and presents new data analysis to help inform these definitions.


20181011 Dutch Emissions Authority (NEa) published HBE-report October
The NEa has published its report regarding the HBE’s (tickets) that are registered on NEa accounts on October 1, 2018. It should be noted that no ‘HBE conventional’ are checked-in in the register in 2018 (yet). This can also be explained by the fact that all carry-over from 2017 is transferred from a standard ‘HBE’ into ‘HBE conventional’, irrespective of the feedstock.


20181005 CBS report on Share of Renewable Energy in the Netherlands 2017
The Dutch Statistical Bureau (CBS) has published the annual ‘Renewable Energy in the Netherlands report’ for 2017. This report shows the developments on renewable energy in electricity, heating and transport. CBS states that a total of 6.6% share of renewable energy is achieved in 2017. This is an increase of 10% in comparison with 2016 when the share was 6.0%. The renewable energy is mostly used for electricity (43%), heating (48%) and biofuels in transport (9%).


20180919 Study: How must the passenger car fleet develop in order to limit climate change?
In a study commissioned by Greenpeace, researchers from the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt, DLR) investigated how Europe's car fleet must develop in order to achieve the Paris Climate Agreement objective of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius. Two scenarios describe which developments are necessary to achieve this goal with a probability of 50 percent and 66 percent, respectively.


20180827 Leiden University Research - The spatial extent of renewable and non-renewable power generation
Research paper that concludes that biomass occupies the most space for all forms of energy and natural gas the least. A suitable metric for comparing the extent of systems is the power density of electricity production, that is, the electrical power produced per horizontal m2 of surface area. This study systematically reviews power densities for 9 energy-types (wind, solar etc.) and multiple sub-types (e.g., for solar power: PV, solar thermal) in the United States.


20180820 The potential impact of electric vehicles on global energy systems
McKinsey has published a report on the potential impact of electric vehicles on global energy systems. Electric vehicles are unlikely to create a power-demand crisis but could reshape the load curve. The analysis suggests the projected growth in e-mobility will not drive substantial increases in total electrical-grid power demand in the near to midterm, thus limiting the need for new electricity-generation capacity during that period.


20180810 Making the transition to zero-emission mobility
Study by ACEA on the barriers to the uptake of electrically chargeable cars in the EU. It is concluded that future reductions of CO2 emissions from passenger cars will be strongly dependent on increased sales of alternatively-powered vehicles, including electric, hybrid, fuel-cell and natural gas-powered vehicles. Besides affordability, a balanced supply of charging and refuelling infrastructure is a pre-requisite for stronger sales of alternatively-powered vehicles across the EU. This study demonstrates that, of the roughly 100,000 charging points available today, 76% are concentrated in just four countries (the Netherlands, Germany, France and the UK)
