Working Group 2: Sustainability and Objectives

This working group has considered the objectives which transport energy policy should seek to achieve by 2030 and what impact this has on trajectories for the fuel mix.
Issues which the group has addressed include:
  • What is the definition of sustainability that stakeholders can agree on?
  • What definitions and criteria should be used by the Task Force?
  • What is acceptable in terms of feedstock mixes/impacts?
  • How should the value of co-products and other policy pressures on agriculture be factored in?
  • How to achieve the best balance between transport and energy sectors?
  • What are the consequences of meeting the 2020 target? 
  • What should be the fuel policy objectives for 2030?
  • How to define ‘advanced fuel technology?
  • How to ensure ‘advanced fuels’ are sustainable
  • Should advanced fuels be incentivised for use in aviation?
  • How to ensure energy security?
  • What is the objective for 2030?
Project status: completed.
