A new renewable energy directive for the period 2020-2030 was proposed by the European Commission on 30 November 2016. The proposed new directive is called RED II and it will enter into force on 1 January 2021, succeeding the current RED from 2009. In short, the RED II proposes a set of policy measures in order to reach the target of a 27% renewable energy share from energy consumed by the transportation, electricity, and heating/cooling sectors by 2030 that was endorsed by the EU Council in 2014.

f3 has compared the parts of the RED II proposal to the current RED that are relevant for the development and regulation of renewable transportation fuels and compiled the main alterations in a PM. The document is not a position paper but rather an overview of how the current directive and the new proposal differ.
