Creating an Enabling Regulatory Framework for Renewable Fuels of Non-Biological Origin in Europe


The EU Hydrogen Strategy and the EU Strategy for Energy System integration recognise the key role of hydrogen and derived renewable and low carbon gases, liquids and chemical feedstocks in decarbonising hard to abate sectors, such as heavy industry as well as transport.

Building on these strategies, the revision of the RED II Directive aims at strengthening the enabling framework for renewable and low-carbon fuels, including the Renewable Fuels of Non-Biological Origin (RFNBOs). Yet, there is a number of barriers to uptake of RFNBOs and regulatory uncertainties both at European and at Member State level that project developers are currently facing.

The objective of this online conference is two-fold, as it aims to:

1. Debate the current barriers to commercial deployment of RFNBOs and opportunities
for addressing those

     A) at European level through RED II implementation and revision and
     B) at national level, focusing on the Netherlands as a case study.

2. Provide stakeholder input on the relevant elements of the ongoing public consultation
on RED II revision run by the European Commission.
