Importance of Biofuels and their Certification System – Energy and Climate Policy of the European Union An increase in the greenhouse effect, which results from the emission of the carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases coming from fossil fuels combustion, adds to the global warming that can change the climate conditions and life on the Earth. That is why biofuels are considered an alternative to fossil fuels, being an example of renewable energy sources (RES). On the basis of the Renewable Energy Directive, which is part of the climate and energy package of the European Union, every Member State is obliged to ensure that the percentage of RES in all types of transportation in 2020 will be at least 10 percent. This level can be reached only through the use of biofuels produced in a sustainable manner. However, as transpires from the audit conducted by the European Court of Auditors, the EU system for the certification of sustainable biofuels is not fully reliable.
