Under the E.U Renewable Energy Directive, we are committed to ensure that by 2020, 10% of our transport demand will be met by renewable sources.

In 2013 the energy in the transport sector accounted for 33% of the energy we use in Ireland. The Department of Transport Tourism and Sport (DTTAS) has overall responsibility for improving the sustainability of the transport sector.

The Biofuels Obligation Scheme has been introduced by the Department  to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels in the transport sector and support the use of renewable energy in the sector.
