  • Effects of regulatory initiatives on existing usage. Alongside the national regulatory framework, international guidelines such as RED 2 were included in the analysis to enable the beneficial use of e-fuels with regards to greenhouse gas neutrality.
  • Existing sales markets were assessed for their use of current fossil fuel-based feedstock and subsequent substitution potential with renewable alternatives was identified. Several market drivers were identified, categorised into distinct sales channels and evaluated. This market analysis was complemented by a competitive analysis.

Forecasts for different price applicability’s have been derived based on different drivers (market and regulation) building on different economic methodologies.
