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,...

Despite the fact that biogas vehicles have been used for decades, the biogas market is small. A newly finished project within the f3 and Swedish Energy Agency collaborative research program Renewable transportation fuels and systems (Förnybara drivmedel och system), has had the aim to increase the knowledge about, firstly, how to get actors to increase the transformation of its feedstock to biogas respectively increase the use of biogas vehicles and, secondly, how to design policy instruments to foster such development. The basic question hav been "What can be done and by whom to foster a more rapid development of supply and use of...

Methanol use in various applications is on the raise globally and there are several examples on how methanol is used in the transport sector today. The production is comparably efficient and cost ef­fective and there are also several examples of where methanol as fuel is under advanced testing in various, sometimes novel, types of engines.

From the historical background can be discerned a lack of long term perspective with respect to (a) earlier and current motivation to “use/not to use” methanol as an alternative fuel, (b) experiences gained from earlier periods of methanol usage, and (c) why interest to use methanol as an automo­tive fuel has shifted through...
