RES in Transport barometer 2021

– 1.5 % The decrease of biofuels consumption for transport in the EU27 between 2019 and 2020 (in energy content)
The EU27 Member States’ 2020 deadline for meeting their renewable energy targets for the transport sector passed in an exceptional context overshadowed by the COVID-19 pandemic which dramatically reduced mobility requirements. Nonetheless, the initial available estimates point to the fact that biofuel consumption in the EU of 27 contracted only slightly in 2020 (by 1.5% year-on-year) because its use was supported by the increase in incorporation rates required to achieve the year’s 10% target for renewable energy in transport. The drop in renewable electricity consumption by railway transport was partly offset by the sharp rise in the number of electric vehicles on the road.
