The Renewable Fuels Agency
We are the organisation charged by the UK government with running the Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation. We allocate Renewable Transport Fuel Certificates (RTFCs) to suppliers of biofuels in the UK. We ensure obligated companies meet their annual obligation. We run the RTFO's world leading carbon and sutainability reporting system. We promote the supply of sustainable biofuels.
Aaron Berry, Head of Carbon and Sustainability, on our iLUC work
A key area in our ongoing research is the issue of indirect land use change, which was highlighted in the Gallagher Review. Aaron Berry, who leads our work on Carbon and Sustainability, explains the methodology we are proposing to identify projects for which iLUC can be avoided.
International Stakeholder Engagement
With a view to enabling the most efficient contact and knowledge sharing between the organisations tasked with regulating renewable fuels in Europe and beyond, we have taken the initiative to establish REFUREC, an informal network of like-minded organisations.
First Annual Report on the wider impacts of the RTFO published
Year One of the RTFO, our first Annual Report to Parliament on the impacts of the RTFO, is now available for download. The report includes verified data comparing the carbon and sustainability performance of individual fuel suppliers. This is the first time that data of this sort has been published anywhere in the world.
