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.
