EU Identifying Biofuels Targets

Eurpoean Energy Commission

June 21, 2013

Dr. Tyra Oldham, LANDsds Sustainable Voice News

Varying nations are strategically plat forming on energy alternatives. The concept of energy mix is capable of integrating bio active solutions to meet global targets instructed under the United Nation. The EU is advancing goals to reduce green house emissions and manage carbon.  The  work of legislation to identify opportunities for sustainable solutions proposed by the “EU energy committee: ‘mandatory advanced biofuels targets needed” is on the table for scrutiny.

Biodiesel Magazine reported, “The EU should boost the use of advanced types of biofuels by setting mandatory targets, but a reliable model for measuring indirect land use change (ILUC) must be found before including it in legislation, said members of the EU Parliament energy committee in a June 20 vote on fuel quality and renewable energy legislation.”

The directive is seen at different points of view as the energy mix is reaching a steady stream of discourse. The opportunity mix of bio and renewables is leveraged by capacity, access and affordable solutions that can be reproduced for infrastructural impact.

“Advanced biofuels are produced from wastes, algae and other sources that don’t compete directly with food and feed crops. They provide high greenhouse gas savings with a low indirect land use change impact. Greater production of advanced biofuels should be encouraged by gradually phasing in mandatory targets for their use in the transport sector, whilst meeting certain sustainability criteria, says the text. The minimum targets proposed are: 0.5 percent in 2016, 2.5 percent in 2020 and 4 percent in 2025.”

The EU sliding into stair step targets is no panacea despite the small size. The planning of these targets against gaps and infrastructural challenges accompanied by the integration of other resources i.e. water are required targets as well that instruct the bio decision. The role of nations is to identify short-and-long-term demands on its population, climate and resource to complete a sustainable energy solution.
