This study has been conducted by Transport & Travel Research Ltd (TTR), in association with Fleetsolve and commissioned by the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership (LowCVP). The purpose was to investigate: the opportunities for liquid and gaseous biofuels with blends greater than 10% by volume; their potential for penetration into the UK fuel mix; the associated commercial and environmental benefits as well as barriers, and; recommend the most appropriate mechanisms to stimulate take-up. LowCVP had identified that the use of these biofuels in high blend form could make a positive contribution to reducing emissions in the transport sector. However the potential and viability of this contribution or potential obstacles to the development of a high blend and gaseous biofuels market were not well understood. To better understand market deployment opportunities and barriers this study considers a wide range of factors including: vehicle duty cycles within major vehicle classes, blend limits and refuelling strategies and additional capital and operational costs.
