Over the last 12 months, many European biofuels producers have faced bankruptcy as a result of rising costs and reduced subsidies.

Biofuels' European growth driven by mandates

Biofuels currently account for only about 1% of total European road fuel in terms of energy content and the EU has missed recent targets to increase this share. However, biofuels' penetration of the road fuel market will continue to grow as a result of national mandates and increased availability at the pump, even in countries like the UK that have traditionally lagged behind in biofuels use.

Biofuels in Europe: use growing but overcapacity looms

Biofuel companies across Europe are increasingly suffering from overcapacity. The issue is becoming particularly acute in Germany, where a new biofuels tax has had the undesirable effect of causing demand to fall rapidly.

Billions at stake in Europe's gas glut

European energy companies are currently embroiled in a $30 billion struggle over unwanted gas caused by a slump in demand, a collapse in wholesale spot prices and the market's contractual pricing mechanisms. The battle could be the beginning of the end for take-or-pay contracts, which have locked utilities into taking delivery of billions of cubic meters of gas for which they have no customers.
