The objective of this study is to elaborate the aspects of a Europe-wide introduction of renewable fuels in a comprehensive way. Against the backdrop of the enlargement of the European Union, the study includes all modes of transport and considers the whole chain from primary energy to its final use. As the underlying objective is a self-sufficient energy supply, only sources of energy within Europe are addressed. The main focus is the long term perspective (about 2030) and the cross border aspect in terms of an area-wide fuel provision. Consequently, local, small-scaled solutions are not discussed. Due to the focus upon the transport sector, comparisons with stationary applications of renewable energy are not given.
