Abstract

In the period 2010-2011 we carried out a survey of fifteen leading European experts on the future of advanced (second and third generation) biofuel technologies. The survey focuses on eliciting probabilistic information on the future costs of these technologies and on the potential role of RD&D (Research, Development and Demonstration) The information gathered from the experts sheds light on the evolution of biofuel technologies and results in a number of important policy recommendations with respect to biofuel RD&D investments.

Keywords: Expert Elicitation, Research, Development and Demonstration, Biofuel Technologies

JEL Classification: Q42, Q55
