Accelerating Energy Independence and Emission Reduction: the role of advanced biofuels in transport

a hybrid EurActiv event on 6 September 2022, Brussels/online

Carlo Hamelinck of studio Gear Up will be one of the panelists at an Euroactive event that discusses the role of low-carbon liquid fuels and especially advanced biofuels in the energy transition in Europe. The panelists will reflect on the proposal by the EC on the revision of the Renewable Energy Directive that will set increased targets for reducing the carbon intensity of energy used for transport.

Questions that will be brought to the table are:

  • How can the EU’s energy independence be increased at affordable prices while reducing fossil consumption and at the same time accelerating climate change mitigation efforts? How can this be done especially in transport?
  • How can the sustainable potential of domestic feedstock for advanced biofuels be increased?
  • How can sustainability be ensured at every step of the value chain?
  • What kind of regulatory framework is needed to boost green growth investments?

Other panelists are Bernd Kuepker (DG Energy of the European Commission), Nils Torvalds (MEP), Erik Bergkvist (MEP) Anne Marit Post-Melbye (Zero Norge) and Marko Janhunen (UPM).
