Energy: Fuel Suppliers

Volume 718: debated on Tuesday 9 March 2010


Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government what progress has been made by United Kingdom fuel suppliers in achieving the five per cent by volume target for biofuel content by 2013–14. [HL2520]

The Renewable Fuels Agency’s annual report (2008-09) records that the percentage by volume of road transport fuel from renewable sources supplied during 2008-09 was 2.7 per cent, against the 2.5 per cent target for the year.

The target level for 2009-10 is 3.25 per cent, and will rise annually in stages, reaching 5 per cent in the 2013-14 reporting year. The Renewable Fuels Agency publishes progress reports on a monthly and quarterly basis, including unverified data on volume of supply.
