We cordially invite your country to join the second meeting of the Renewable Fuels Regulators Club (REFUREC) on 16 June in Brussels. This event will focus on RED implementations plans, including challenges and key issues. Several Member States will present and update on their implementation plans. Please see attached the invitation for further details. If you are interested in participating, please email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 24 May 2010. Please also indicate if you are interested in presenting on your country’s implementation plan (10-15 min presentation) or if you would like to add items to the open agenda. Participation in this event is not combined with any commitment to join REFUREC.
We also invite you to join in the afternoon an Ecofys workshop on ‘National Biofuel Sustainability Schemes under the EU RED’, where Ecofys will share their expertise of supporting the development of sustainability schemes for biofuels and bioliquids. You will have the opportunity to learn more about the experiences of the UK Renewable Fuels Agency with the introduction of the EU’s first biofuel sustainability reporting scheme. There will also be an open floor where you are invited to ask questions and share your thoughts and experiences with other Member States. If you are interested in participating, please email to email@example.com.
With a view to enabling the most efficient contact and knowledge sharing between the organisations tasked with regulating renewable fuels in Europe and beyond, the UK’s Renewable Fuels Agency (RFA) has taken the initiative to establish the ‘Renewable Fuels Regulators Club’ (REFUREC), an informal ‘club’ of renewable fuel regulators. To officially launch REFUREC, the RFA invited interested parties to an inaugural meeting with a view to discussing how the club members might make the most use of this opportunity.
The event took place two months ago in London, with representatives from the UK, Germany, Spain, Ireland, Sweden, France, Denmark, Slovak Republic, Hungary, Netherlands, Portugal and the European Commission. The first get-together offered a valuable platform to share views on the implementation of RED carbon and sustainability criteria, and to discuss how we might make the most use of REFUREC in the future. Event impressions and further information are available here.
The next meetings are scheduled for 7 September in Germany and late November or early December in Spain.
