The United States -- though the 2005 Energy Policy Act -- and the European Union -- through the European Energy Policy -- created incentives for expanding biofuel production and use.  On 24 May 2007, the German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) convened a seminar in Brussels on "Transatlantic Approaches to Biofuels" and invited R. Andreas Kraemer of Ecologic Institute to provide indight to sustainability and trade policy aspects.

The policy brief „European Union Policy on Bioenergy“ [pdf, 375 KB, English] by R. Andreas Kraemer and Stephanie Schlegel provides the background to EU policies in the field.
