Ongoing regulatory uncertainty: a short analysis of bio-fuels in the EU


After a long, controversial path, bio-fuels legislation has entered in a more dynamic phase. This comes after the stalemate emerged at the Energy Council held on December 12, 2013 over the Proposal regarding the quality of petrol and diesel fuels amending the Directive 2009/28/EC on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources. The bio-fuels´ uncertain future faces extensive opposition from both environmental groups and renewable fuels industry stakeholders.Further action and a firm legislative package that will not encumber economic growth, but encourage the transition to advanced bio-fuels and support the achievement of EU´s energy objectives, are long awaited.
