ended successfully: 20th International Conference on Renewable Mobility "Fuels of the Future" on 23rd and 24th January 2023
During the two days of the 20th Conference on Renewable Mobility, everything revolved around new trends and potential uses of renewable fuels. Over 700 participants from 33 countries accepted the invitation from the five German biofuel industry associations to find out more about the transport transition options and low-CO₂ mobility at the two-day international conference “Fuels of the Future”.
The conference participants agree: Alternative drive options, such as biodiesel, bioethanol and biomethane, are in great demand. The challenge of mitigating climate change means e-fuels produced from wind, solar and bioenergy will also play a major role in transport-sector measures to protect the climate. As the Chair of the German Bioenergy Association (BBE), Artur Auernhammer, noted at the start of the conference, sustainable biofuels saved over 11 million tonnes of CO₂ in 2021. He emphasised that sustainable certified biofuels make a vital contribution to efficient, immediately impactful climate change mitigation in the transport sector and will continue to do so in future. With an eye to positions adopted by the Federal Ministry for the Environment, the BBE Chair underlined that a comprehensive strategy for alternative fuels and drives is now crucial.
The associations who organised the conference would like to thank all partners and participants for the successful conference and gripping discussions. The 21st International Conference on Renewable Mobility “Fuels of the Future 2024” is planned as an in-person event on 22nd and 23rd January 2024 in Berlin.

“Fuels of the future”: Biofuel industry blames Federal Environment Minister Steffi Lemke for missed climate protection targets in the transport sector
The Federal Ministry for the Environment, supported by Federal Minister of Agriculture, Cem Özdemir, risks derailing climate change mitigation in the transport sector; the climate protection targets are becoming unachievable. During the two days of the 20th Conference on Renewable Mobility, everything revolved around new trends and potential uses of renewable fuels. The five German biofuel industry associations organising the event welcomed 700 participants from 33 countries to the conference.

“Fuels of the Future”: Kick-off for the 20th Conference
Over 70 speakers will discuss measures to achieve climate change mitigation goals at the 20th Conference on Renewable Mobility “Fuels of the Future” on 23rd and 24th January. Innovative applications and further technical development of renewable fuels in the mobility sector will be at the heart of the presentations and panel discussions.

Using alternative fuels consistently ensures security of supply and climate change mitigation with immediate effect in the transport sector
The energy crisis triggered by the war in Ukraine clearly confirms how reliant Europe, especially Germany, has become on fossil gas and oil supplies from Russia that must be replaced by new supply partners. “This dependency clearly weighs on national budgets and on households across the European Union. If we continue to rely on fossil energy sources instead of switching more rapidly to renewable energies in all sectors, it will be virtually impossible to attain the more rigorous climate change mitigation targets and the higher share of renewable energies envisaged by 2030 in the recast European Effort Sharing Regulation and the Renewable Energy Directive (RED III)”, as Artur Auernhammer, Chair of the German Bioenergy Association(BBE), notes.
