UK could become frontrunner in sustainable aviation fuels through the development of seven industrial clusters

Sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) can play a significant role in the UK’s net zero aspirations, with UK domestic production potentially achieving 3.6m tonnes CO2 savings annually by 2038. The growth of a UK SAF industry could generate up to £3 billion in GVA per annum and 20,200 jobs by 2038, with these benefits spread across the UK.

The Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Observatory is live!

The Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Observatory (FCHO) which aims to be the go-to source of information for the sector, was launched in a webinar on 15 September 2020 attended by over 1400 interested participants

Major new LCA study provides insight on approaches to estimating environmental impacts of vehicles and fuels

The EU’s recent Green Deal is another step in the direction of decarbonised energy and transport systems in Europe. It is therefore critical to accurately measure and understand life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental impacts of energy sources, fuels and vehicles to ensure policy decisions favour technologies with significant environmental benefits.

East Neuk Power-to-Hydrogen judged Cross Vector Project of the Year

The East Neuk Power-to-Hydrogen project has been named the Cross Vector Project of the Year at the 2020 Network Awards. At the delayed awards ceremony, the innovative project to assess the benefits of producing hydrogen from renewables in Scotland beat off stiff competition to win this new award category. Work undertaken by E4tech and Artelys, and funded by SGN and Scottish Power Energy Networks through the Network Innovation Allowance, assessed the economic benefits of coupling the electricity and gas networks in the region of Fife to produce hydrogen for a number of end-use applications including transport and heat.

Summary report of first stakeholder consultation on new feedstocks for advanced biofuels published (EU RED II – Annex IX).

E4tech, together with the Cerulogy, ICCT, Navigant, SCS Global Services and Wageningen University & Research are assisting the European Commission in evaluating biofuel feedstocks which could be added to Annex IX of the recast Renewable Energy Directive, also known as “RED II”. A stakeholder consultation to feed into the project was held from 14 April to 27th May, leading to over 400 responses. Inputs to the consultation have been used to finalise the short list of feedstocks to be evaluated in greater detail in Task 2 and Task 3 of the project.
