The role of low carbonfuels in achieving the Paris agreement

Transport is the only sector of the EU and global economy where the greenhouse gas emissions
continue to increase. The Paris agreement has ambitious targets and recent studies indicate that these
can only be achieved with an increasedc use of bioenrgy in genral and biofuels in particular in the sector
of transport. 
The session will focus on the role biofuels will have to play in order to meet the Paris objectives.
Presentations will be from international institutions such as IEA, IRENA and Biofuel Platform, national
governements and from the EU biofuels industry since these are the key interlocutors and stakeholders
who can facilitate the rapid change to decarbonised transport.
The event is targeting decision makers at national and European level.
