Renewable energy use in the transportation sector will consist of a combination of renewable electricity and biofuels. Hence, biofuels can be expected to play an increasingly important role in the future energy supply for transportation. The potential for sustainable biofuels, based on available feedstock, can increase substantially compared to today, both in Sweden and globally, but is still limited compared to the amount of fossil gasoline and diesel currently used. Availability of sustainable biomass feedstock will therefore be crucial for a sustainable transportation sector.

This conclude Ingrid Nyström and...
