ADVANCEFUEL is a project funded through the European Research and Innovation programme Horizon 2020. ADVANCEFUEL is a coordination and support action in response to the Call “competitive low-carbon energy” (LCE) 21: Market uptake of renewable energy technologies" under the work programme 2016-2017 to "secure, clean and efficient energy". The project duration is three years (September 2017 to August 2020).
The ADVANCEFUEL Consortium consists of 8 partners from 6 countries and has the goal to facilitate the market roll-out of advanced liquid biofuels and other liquid renewable fuels in the transportation sector between 2020 and 2030, with an outlook on post-2030-impacts.This will be achieved by
The Agency for Renewable Resources (FNR) is responsible for the overall coordination of the project and for the coordination of the work package 7 “Stakeholders engagement with market players to support the market-rollout of advanced liquid biofuels and other liquid renewable fuels”.
In order to validate results and ensure their successful uptake, ADVANCEFUEL intends to engage stakeholders of the biofuel commercialisation process, such as industry players, researchers, policy makers and regulators in a dialogue via the ADVANCEFUEL Stakeholder Platform, offering subscribers the opportunity to share their opinions via personal interviews and public consultations, as well as contributing to draft ADVANCEFUEL project tools and results. Thereby it will be ensured that project results and the direction of ADVANCEFUELSl’s main foci of attention are harmonised with the market player’s views and that main concerns are taken into account. Furthermore the Stakeholder Platform will provide information on innovative concepts, strategies and decision-support tools covering topics along the entire value chain.
The project partners are: Leibniz-Institut für Agrartechnik und Bioökonomie e.V. – ATB (Germany), Stichting Energieonderzoek Centrum Nederland – ECN (Netherlands), Universiteit Utrecht (Netherlands), Chalmers tekniska högskola AB (Sweden), Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine (United Kingdom), Aalto-Korkeakoulusaatio (Finland), Greenovate!Europe (Belgium).
