Biofuels for transport: Policies and possibilities
[233 kB :: downloaded 913 times]
Bioenergy and biofuels are of growing public and private interest at a time of rapidly rising world energy demand and high oil prices. Amid concerns over climate change, they are also increasingly under the spotlight as a “cleaner” alternative to fossil fuels. But are biofuels for transport a viable alternative to power our cars, trucks and buses? Do they deliver the expected environmental benefits? And what role should public policy play in their development? This Policy Brief, jointly produced by the OECD and the IEA, looks at the current situation with biofuels in road transport, and how governments can balance all these elements when crafting policies for energy and biofuels.
