Renewable Fuels for Aviation
Coordination of renewable fuel stakeholders' strategy in the field of aviation
The project aims to develop proposals for a coherent,
structured, and forward looking strategy for promoting the take-up of
renewable fuels in EU aviation. This will imply notably tackling the
bottlenecks which prevent a larger penetration of low carbon fuels
in EU aviation e.g. how to finance the extra costs of renewable fuels, how
to incentivize Member States to develop a framework for renewable
fuels for aviation, how to accompany a progressive take up of
these fuels in the sector, how to progress towards international
sustainability criteria, which strategy to adopt with respect to
The compatibility of the proposed solutions with an evolving international context is kept in mind.
In addition, support is provided to the Core Team of the Biofuel Flightpath initiative.
TML will develop and use economic models to
investigate and assess various policy options for the deployment of
renewable fuels in EU aviation.
We will also contribute to the construction of
a number of reference scenarios illustrating possible ways to achieve
production targets. These scenarios will provide for a range of
production targets, production schemes with the different pathways,
their respective production and the origin of the feedstock.
Finally, we will provide an estimate of the cost of supporting policy measures.
