GoodFuels supports EU’s RED II

GoodFuels has added its backing to the RED II initiative saying it was in favour of directives that stimulate renewables over fossil fuels.

Johannes Schürmann, of GoodFuels, says his company thinks it is a forward-looking initiative.

The European Commission revealed its Clean Energy for all Europeans Initiative a few years back. As part of its package, the Commission adopted a legislative proposal for a recast of the Renewable Energy Directive, RED II.

In Red II, the EU target for renewable power sources consumption by 2030 has been elevated to 32%.

Schürmann mentioned: To begin with, a large EU directive reveals the willingness to make a transition to renewable power. It additionally provides every member state the identical targets, which creates a level playing field among the many different member states.

“When inspecting the transportation fuels part of RED-II in more detail, there are additionally optimistic sides; the clear distinction between different feedstocks (conventional versus advanced), a minimal CO2 discount threshold for brand new build biofuel crops, and opt-ins for sectors that rely on liquid fuels like aviation and maritime.”

Altogether, one might argue that RED-II seems to be a more refined and developed directive in comparison with present RED standards.”

Nonetheless, he mentioned there have been guidelines and targets that may very well be clearer and more ambitious.

One instance is the height of the renewable power in transport target, which is at present set on 14% in 2030. If and when this directive is revised, I’d be in favour of accelerating this number.

Subsequent to the rise of the peak in renewable transport, we make a tough plea for capitalising on aviation and maritime opt-ins followed by fundamental separate mandates for these two key transport segments for which superior biofuels is, without doubt, one of the few choices out there to decarbonise.
