Workshop on Biofuels Projections in AEO Presentations

Wednesday, March 20, 2013


About the workshop

The U.S. Energy Information Administration's Office of Petroleum, Natural Gas, and Biofuels Analysis held a workshop on biofuels projections in the Annual Energy Outlook (AEO). The objective of the workshop was to explore the opportunities and challenges of representing advanced (cellulosic) biofuels in our AEO2013 long term forecast. The workshop focused on the penetration of E85 and flex-fueled vehicles, U.S. and Brazilian biofuels supply, biofuels vs. biochemical competition, and drop-in fuels. One of the main purposes of the workshop was to elicit feedback on EIA's work to inform future short-term and long-term analysis and modeling of biofuels.
