International expert workshop: Ten times more renewable fuels

24 Oct, 2023 - 24 Oct, 2023
Location: Leipzig (DE)
Task 39RegularIEA Bioenergy


Worldwide, the demand for renewable fuels for sustainable mobility is increasing enormously. In the last 20 years, production could be expanded to about 4 EJ of renewable fuels. According to scenarios of IRENA and IEA, by 2050 it must be about 3.2 to 5.8 EJ; on average a tenfold of today’s production. Experts from IEA Bioenergy TCP Task 39 and IEA AMF, as well as representatives from Germany, will present their views and invite to a joint discussion.

We invite all interested parties to participate on 24 October, 2023 from 12 to 7 pm at the DBFZ in Leipzig (Germany) for an international expert workshop and the option to visit the pilot plant at the DBFZ.
