Programme: Low Carbon Fuels

Last update: 02 January 2014

Work commissioned within the Low Carbon Fuels (LCF) research programme provides support for developing Government policy on low-carbon transport fuels. LCF research in 2013-2015 will focus on the impacts of our current policy; developing options for meeting the 2020 targets set out in the Renewable Energy Directive (RED) and Fuel Quality Directive (FQD); the sustainability of biofuel feedstocks, including indirect impacts; and the development of advanced fuel technologies.

Note for reader:

Some of the sub-programmes and projects in LCF are being reassigned and updated to reflect the current organisational structure. This is underway and will be completed in due course. The Department organogram can be found at this website address:
