Could it be that the fossil fuel industry now controls Eurelectric as well as much of EU energy policy? Ethanol’s performance in climate mitigation is far superior to gas. The omission is all the more strange as IEA and every other significant independent energy transport body project biofuels as a major contributor to transport decarbonisation for decades ahead.
