The International Energy Agency (IEA) and European Commission (EC) are organizing a comprehensive workshop on electrofuels in coordination with the IEA Technology Collaboration Programmes (TCP) Bioenergy, Hydrogen, Clean and Efficient Combustion, Advanced Fuel Cells, and Advanced Motor Fuels as well as the Art Fuels Forum. The workshop will take place on  Monday, 10 September 2018 in Brussels. 

The goal of this workshop is to discuss the potential role of electrofuels in a decarbonizing energy sector despite existing barriers from high production costs and uncertain sustainability performance.

The event will focus on four main topics:

1. Strategic relevance and potential of electrofuels amidst emerging renewable generation capacity with low variable costs

2. Production pathways, cost developments, and usage options for electrofuels

3. The sustainability of electrofuels with respect to key indicators such as life cycle emissions and land use requirements

4. Implications for low carbon transport scenarios, policy developments, and the work plan of the IEA Technology Collaboration Programmes

Participation is open within the limits of room capacity. If you are interested to attend and contribute to the deliberations and discussions of this conference you are invited to register at:
