Between dead end and energy transition:
A social-ecological multilevel analysis of transnational biofuel policy

Welcome to "Fair Fuels?"

What are the socioeconomic impacts of biofuel production? To what extent can these fuels be produced and used in a socially and environmentally compatible way? Do they make an indispensable contribution to the energy transition or do they instead lead to a dead end? These questions were solved by Fair Fuels?, a junior research group funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).

This project was funded through the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research’s (BMBF) Social-Ecological Research (SÖF) program (promotional reference 01UU0905). On this website you will find all information, results and publications of the project summarised. The Institute for Ecological Economy Research (IÖW) also conducts research on the topics of energy transition and climate protection in follow-up projects. www.ioew.de
