Étiqueté : transport fuel
In this OIES paper, Chris Le Fevre draws on extensive research and discussion with interested bodies to address the case for natural gas in transport, the extent and likelihood of its adoption, the long term implications for additional European gas demand and the key policy drivers and structural challenges which would encourage or inhibit these developments…
This IEA’s study examines the production costs of a range of transport fuels and energy carriers under varying crude oil price assumptions and technology market maturation levels. An engineering “bottom-up” approach is used to estimate the effect of the input cost of oil and of various technological assumptions on the finished price of these fuels. In total, the production costs of 20 fuels are examined for crude oil prices between USD 60 and USD 150 per barrel.
The IISD’s research reviews available information on subsidies to conventional transport fuels and biofuels, quantifying these subsidies on a per unit of energy basis. The same analysis is applied to subsidies for the generation of electricity, with a comparison of nuclear, fossil fuel and renewable energy sources
