Biofuels as Part of a Climate Protection and Economic Growth Strategy – Comparing Scientific and Industrial Perspectives

TimeLoc

Berlin
Germany

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 25 May 2007, the German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) and DaimlerChrysler convened a conference in Berlin on "Transatlantic Approaches to Biofuels". R. Andreas Kraemer of Ecologic moderated the discussion on assessing European and U.S. policies.

The speakers were:

  • Ottmar Edenhofer, Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact (PIK)
  • Karl-Heinz-Schlaiss, DaimlerChrysler
  • Tim Searchinger, German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF)
  • Tom Blades, Choren Industries

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.
