Renewables in the transport sector –which routes are open?

This background paper points at existing barriers and opportunities for expanding renewables in the transport sector.

In the EU’s energy mix, transport plays a special role. It claims more than 30 percent of final energy demand in the EU. At the same time, the sector, dominated by road transport, is one of the biggest sources of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In a sectorial comparison with power and heat, the share of renewables in the transport sector is by far the lowest. Solutions are at hand, but have a hard time.
