  • 1. ADORE IT ACTIONS coordinated by GRONINGEN 01-OCT-2008 Wouter Jan van den Berg Staff member department Environment & Soilconservation
  • 2. agenda • Introduction • Update status quo • Implementation of actions
  • 3. Province of Groningen One of twelve provinces in the Netherlands Divided in 25 municipalities Size (8th): 2336km2 (Land) 623km2 (Water) Inhabitants (9th): 573.923
  • 4. Biofuels targets – different levels • EU/ National: 10% by 2020 (but…) • Northern Netherlands: 10% by 2015 (but…) • Provincial/ ADORE IT: 6% - 10% by 2010
  • 5. Criticism on biofuels • Cause of high food prices • uses land which could have been used for food/ causes hunger • Destroys rainforest • CO2-profile current bio-fuels not so good/ wait for 2nd generation • Low overall potential Jan Spakman Duurzaamheid Biomassa 9 juni 2008
  • 6. Observations • Less than 1% of worldwide areable land is used for biofuels • Agricultural policy EU has been targeting and lowering supply, developing countries ‘forgot’ to take care of agriculture • 2nd generation not yet commercially available/ 1st generation to be improved • Studies indicate: 20-30% biobased is possible, in transport maybe 60%
  • 7. Status quo? The tide is changing • From hype to complete distrust • Biofuels as scapegoat for structural problems (“convenient lies”) • EU target discussed • Fuel mandates and other policies not enough for substantial share of biofuels • Market is moving towards electric vehicles
  • 8. Main problem • No trust • No demand
  • 9. BfBf’s Barriers for Biofuels • Regional availability • Authorisation • Information • Visibility & trust (sustainablity) • Different standards
  • 10. Focal points • Sustainability evaluation of projects • Workshops • Training of municipalities (authorisation)  should fit in main strategy of ADORE IT (focus on demand side)
  • 11. How to stimulate demand? ADORE IT  Stimulate demand for & distribution of biofuels in different EU regions and member states, coordination Biomass actionplan 2007-2010  stimulate production & use of biomass for bioproducts & energy purposes 100.000 vehicles plan 2008 – 2011  Stimulate demand for & distribution of biofuels on a regional scale (Northern Netherlands) •
  • 12. 100.000 vehicles? Because….? • Toyota was to build 100,000 vehicles per year in Ontario (freerepublic.com, July 3, 2005)? • Hyundai was to build 100.000-vehicle plant in Russia (livemint.com, 12 november 2007)? • Hillary Clinton, (2008) aimed for 100.000 federal ‘plug in’ electrical vehicles by 2015?  Based on sound scenario analysis (active/ non active national biofuelspolicy)
  • 13. • Energy Agreemeent 4 Energy Valley provinces (Drenthe Groningen Noord- Holland (partly) Fryslân) and National Government
  • 14. Specific goal of Energy agreement • 40-50 PJoule sustainable energy production by 2011 (energy use of half a million households) • 4-5 Mton CO2 reduction by 2011 (emission of 1,5 million cars)
  • 15. Energy agreement: 5 themes 2. Energy saving in build-up area 3. Sustainable energy 4. Biofuels and sustainable mobility 5. Clean fossil fuel (Carbon Capture and Storage) 6. Knowledge and innovation
  • 16. ambition of the three provinces in Northern Netherlands
  • 17. Action plan 2008 - 2011: 3. 9 natural gas (greengas) fillingstations 4. 6 bioethanol + 6 biodiesel fillingstations 5. Communication 6. Fleet of cars in provincial organisation 7. Public transport
  • 18. Action plan 2008 - 2011: 3. Reviews frame for sustainability 4. EU-project sustainable fuel 5. Feasibility study utilisation car taxes 6. Learning about CO2 prestation 7. Organisation and exchange activities BioMotion 22 09 2008 A regional answer
  • 19. 1+2: fillingstations Subsidizing: investment costs + marketing plan EU- legislation (State support: de minimis)
  • 20. 3: Communication Promotionteam (fleet owners) Consumers campaign
  • 21. s 4: Sustainable fleet of cars in provincial organisation Set an example to others/ lauching customer All cars on sustainable fuels by 2015: • cars of the delegates (!!!) • workcars of roadmenders etc
  • 22. 5. Sustainable public transport Integration of sustainability in new contracts with transport companies
  • 23. 6. Reviews frame for sustainability Score card Criteria for sustainability
  • 24. Sustainability criteria • Essential for certification • Requested by politicians • Needed to prevent criticism • Based on Dutch ‘Cramer criteria’ – Greenhouse gas balance – Competition with food, local energy supply, medicines and construction materials – Biodiversity – Environment – Economic prosperity – Well-being
  • 25. 10. Organisation and exchange activities On going proces during projectperiod Feasibility studies
  • 26.
