For RES in transport no progress has been achieved in the past and it can be expected that without the establishment of effective policy measures it can hardly be expected that this may change in future. Thus, for RES in transport, and here specifically for biofuels we do not expect a (significant) contribution by 2020 in any of the CPs.

Are we stepping into the trap? While trying to make the energy industry more sustainable, clean and market oriented we could end up with unreliable, expensive and unstable energy environment which could lead to the point of no return, so called Domino effect in economy, other industrial fields, not to mention the most important, availability for all and so neglected, but so important, HUMANITY.

In general, energy poverty represents a concept of reduced access to energy, especially to modern, sustainable energy. One of the global sustainable goals is related to ensuring access to affordable, reliable and modern energy for all.
Recent trends show that policy efforts have weakened in recent years. In other words, the improvements in energy efficiency that were seen in recent years are now slowing down as fewer new standards and policies were introduced in the past two years. This has contributed to the acceleration in energy demand growth that was observed in 2017.
Weather conditions last year were also responsible for almost a fifth of the increase in global energy demand. Cold snaps drove demand for heating and, more significantly, hotter summer temperatures pushed up demand for cooling.
The reform efforts began in 2006 with the membership in the Energy Community was finalized with the adoption of a new law on the electricity sector in 2015. While the reform has slowed down a little over the past two years, in the recent months, the Council of Ministers and key stakeholders have found new impetus under the impulse of European integration process to continue with sectorial reform. Process materialise with approve of the strategic plan for reforming the energy sector in Albania on December 2018.
Renewable energy, combined with deeper electrification, can make up 75% of the carbon dioxide reductions needed from energy-related emissions, to meet the Paris Agreement by 2050.
Based on a carbon budget from the latest IPCC special report on the impacts of global warming of 1.5°C, IRENA’s new Global Energy Transformation report shows that the global energy-related CO2 budget will run out at the latest by 2030.
Council of the European Union adopted conclusions ”Towards an ever more sustainable Union by 2030”, at its meeting held on 9 April 2019 in Luxemburg.
The Council stresses that the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals is essential to our world for ensuring a peaceful and secure life for the current and next generations while respecting the limits of our planet
