Despite over 20 years of use as a transportation fuel in Sweden, and a production, distribution and use established at a commercial scale in the more heavily populated areas of the country, the use of biogas is still limited in comparison to other established renewable transportation fuels fuels such as hydrotreated vegetable oils (HVO) or fatty acid methyl esters (FAME).

Stefan Grönkvist, KTH, has led a newly finished project within the Swedish Energy Agency and f3 collaborative research program Renewable transportation fuels and systems (samverkansprogrammet Förnybara drivmedel och system) that has aimed to increase the...

Future biofuel production opportunities in Sweden can be analysed in various ways. The BeWhere Sweden project series has had three different starting points, all with the aim of adding to the knowledge of aspects on optimal localisation of biofuel production through the use of an spatially explicit energy system model. Now, the third project within the series, titled BeWhere - Stake-holder analysis of biofuel production in Sweden, has delivered its final report.

The project has been carried out within the Swedish Energy Agency and f3 collaborative research program Renewable transportation fuels...

In May, an extended summary of the project Environmental and socio-economic benefits from Swedish biofuel production was published. The project, carried out within the Swedish Energy Agency and f3 collaborative research program Renewable transportation fuels and systems (Förnybara drivmedel och system), investigates the potential of non-fuel related benefits from biofuel production to contribute to GHG emission reductions when replacing fossil fuels. There are many valuable by...

Since January 2014, the Swedish Energy Agency and f3 have financed the collaborative research program Renewable transportation fuels and systems (Förnybara drivmedel och system). The aim of the program is to enhance the understanding of systems among politicians, agencies and industry stakeholders through analyses that in different ways can work as scientifically based decision support.

In order to realise the innovation potential of renewable sustainable transportation fuels in society, the knowledge about innovation systems and technological solutions need to be combined with e.g. economy, psychology, and behavioural sciences....

The project BeWhere - Stake-holder analysis of biofuel production in Sweden will soon be finished. It is the third of a series of projects that has focused on different aspects of optimal localisation of biofuel production in Sweden, and is carried out within the f3 and Swedish Energy Agency collaborative research program Renewable transportation fuels and systems (Förnybara drivmedel och system). A scientific article in Sustainability is the first output from the project.

In the study, different stake-holders have been interviewed,...
