[August-September 2020]

To stimulate the use of renewable fuels in the maritime sector, the Netherlands chose to account such renewable fuels for the national renewable energy in transport obligation, via an opt-in construction. While existing for some years, in 2020 this option attracted various initiatives by maritime fuel and sector players. The increased interest could lead to possible negative impacts on compliance to FQD and overall RED targets. The Ministry of infrastructure and Water Management asked studio Gear Up to assess the development and to recommend how climate targets could be met while at the same time the deployment of renewable fuels in the maritime sector could be further enhanced. It was recommended to implement a separate renewable energy obligation for the maritime sector.
