Abstract: This report details the 2016 minor update of the five-year JEC Biofuels Programme which was first published in 2011 and updated in 2014. The research collaboration between the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission, EUCAR and Concawe has investigated the potential role of biofuels and other renewable and alternative energy sources in achieving the mandatory 10% renewable energy target in the transport sector by 2020 with an associated calculation of the impact of renewable fuels on the Fuel Quality directive target. The focus of the analysis was on road transport although all other transport modes have been considered. A dedicated analytical tool, the so-called Fleet and Fuels (F&F) model, has been developed and used. The modelled fleet development leads to a transport fuel demand and constitutes the basis on which penetration and distribution of alternative motor fuels – and availability thereof – are analysed. The impacts of key parameters on the achievement of the RED and FQD targets are analysed in sensitivity cases.
