The Role of Renewable Fuels in Decarbonizing Road TransportRenewable fuels, in addition to all forms of electric vehicles powered by lowcarbon electricity, can make an important contribution in decarbonizing theroad transport sector, especially in the short and medium term and for allmodes of transport.Bringing down the GHG emissions of the road transport sector to zero by 2050 cannot beachieved by one measure alone.Countries that deploy a set of different measures such as reducing transport demand,improving vehicle efficiency, and adding renewable energy carriers such as biofuels, e-fuels,renewable electricity and renewable hydrogen have the best chances to meet ambitiousdecarbonization goals.Our assessment shows that biofuels contribute most to decarbonization now and up to 2030,2040, or even 2050, depending on the country. In Germany and in the USA, efficiency gainsbecome the main contributor after 2030, and in Finland and Sweden the impact of biofuelsremains largest until around 2040 when the use of electric vehicles takes over. In Brazil,biofuels remain the largest contributor until 2050.BackgroundIn the light of climate change, there is an urgent need to decarbonize our societies. The roadtransport sector is specifically challenging, as transport demand is growing, and so are thesector s GHG emissions. Electric mobility powered by renewable power will not be able tosolve this on its own, and renewable transport fuels will be needed to bridge the gapbetween GHG emission reduction targets and the prospected actual emissions.A team of experts has assessed the transport sector and its projected development up to2030 and 2050 for a number of countries, including Germany, Sweden, Finland, USA, andBrazil. The work was initiated and carried out jointly by two Technology CollaborationProgrammes of the International Energy Agency, namely the IEA Bioenergy TCP and theAdvanced Motor Fuels TCP, with support of the Directorate General for Energy of theEuropean Commission. The analysis is based on current national policies, projections of thevehicle fleet, and on the availability of renewable transport fuels.The objective of the assessment was to quantify the role that renewable fuels play indecarbonizing the road transport sector, and to provide insights to policy makers on howindividual countries differ from one another, which options for decarbonization they have,and best practice examples of successful policies.Research ProtocolThe core of the project was the assessment of the possible evolution of the road transportsectors of five individual countries. Fleet data was provided by country experts andmodelling assumptions as well as the calculation results were discussed with these expertsonline and in an expert workshop.The road transport sectors of Finland, Sweden, Germany, USA and Brazil were modelled inthe VTT-owned ALIISA model. This model includes 5 vehicle categories, 6 propulsionsystems and 12 fuel options. Input data for each country includes assumptions on total salesin each vehicle category for future years, the distribution between the availablepowertrain/fuel options in sales, the evolution of energy efficiency, and the annual drivendistance, which vary between categories, age classes and powertrain/fuel combinations. Themodel then calculates the fleet composition for each year up to 2050, the total fleet energyiii

demand, and the resulting tank-to-wheel (TTW) CO2 emissions. The model assumes zeroCO2 emissions from renewable shares and renewable electricity.These calculations were performed for four different scenarios, the Current PoliciesScenario, MORE EV Scenario, MAX BIO Scenario, and E-FUELS Scenario.Other parts of the project described the key strategies of 7 countries to achieve cleanertransport sectors; renewable fuel production pathways and their technology readiness levels,GHG emissions, costs, and feedstocks availabilities; the applicability of fuels in engines; andimplementation barriers, policy recommendations and best practice policy examples.Key MessagesRenewable transport fuel basics Renewable transport fuels such as biofuels and e-fuels can, depending on thecomponent, be used in low blends, as drop-in fuels with up to 100% substitution,and as special fuels in dedicated or adapted engines/vehicles. However,dedicated alternative fuel vehicles are not yet widely introduced globally. Substantial volumes of sustainable feedstocks could be made available forbiofuels production, sufficient to replace up to 30% of transport fuel demand in2060. When assessed in life cycle terms, biofuels offer significant GHG emissionreductions over fossil fuels. The current average carbon intensity of biofuelsprovided to California ranges from 15 to 65 gCO2e/MJ (versus fossil diesel andgasoline carbon intensities of 95). Future biofuel carbon intensities are expectedto decrease further, and can also be net negative when obtaining credits foravoided GHG emissions from waste disposal or if combined with CCS. Costs of advanced biofuels depend on the production pathway and with a rangefrom 0.35 to 1.58 EUR/l gasoline equivalent are in most cases significantly higherthan the current costs of fossil fuel equivalents. Advanced biofuel technologiesare currently in their early stages of development, and therefore significantpotential for further cost reduction exists.Country assessments Transport sector indicators such as the number of vehicles per capita, transportwork per capita and transport work per geographic area for the countriesassessed (Finland, Sweden, Germany, USA and Brazil) vary highly. In the Current Policies scenario, biofuels already provide the largest contributionto the reduction of TTW CO2 emissions now and up to 2030, 2040, or even 2050,depending on the country. Electric vehicles only catch up with biofuels by 2040. Even if electric vehicles are introduced at a higher rate, biofuels remain thelargest contributor to decarbonization in the short to medium term. Depending on the fuel qualities available in a region, maximizing the use ofbiofuels, and in particular of drop-in biofuels, can reduce TTW CO2 emissions toalmost zero by 2050. The use of e-fuels could close the gap between emission reductions achieved byother measures and ambitious targets. The amount of e-fuels needed to fullydisplace fossil fuels however would require significant amounts of non-fossilelectricity and captured CO2 emissions, which are unlikely to be available in manycountries.iv

Implementation barriers Competition with well-established fossil fuels-based system Fluctuating policy drivers, lack of long-term stable policies Incomplete or unbalanced set of policy measures Public perception of technical performance, potential and sustainability Requirement to build up infrastructure for alternative fuels and alternative fuelvehicles Successful policy examples Blending mandates for biofuels Incentives based on GHG impact Strict and consistent sustainability guidelines Advanced biofuels require specific support, such as separate obligations, RD&Dsupport, and risk guaranteesPolicy suggestions from the expert workshop (Brussels, 18 November 2019) Focus on the carbon intensity of biofuels Get oil majors involved and leverage their existing fuel supply chains anddistribution networks to make biofuels accessible to the marketplace in a costefficient way Turn the tables and establish a requirement to phase out fossil fuels Allow automakers to make use of the GHG emission reductions that the use ofrenewable fuels offers and count these against their CO2 emissions fleet targets(which could then be strengthened)v

The need to decarbonize the transport sectorIn the light of climate change, there is an urgent need to decarbonize our societies. Thetransport sector, and within it in particular the road transport sector, is specificallychallenging, as transport demand is growing, and so are the sector s GHG emissions.Decarbonization includes all options to reduce GHG emissions and make road transportcleaner, including low(-fossil)-carbon energy carriers such as biofuels, e-fuels, andrenewable electricity. None of these will be able to solve this grand challen
