The Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation (RTFO) tables are the main data source for this statistical release. However, from 2019, the UK also reports renewable fuel supply under the Motor fuel greenhouse gas emissions reporting guidance (GHG tables). The GHG regulations are closely related to the RTFO, however small differences in reporting requirements and categorisations result in small differences in figures. Readers are advised that the report is based on data in the RTFO tables, and that back-series reports are based on past RTFO tables.

Statistics on the supply of renewable fuels, reported under the Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation for 2019, based on data available as of 18 September 2019.

This is the second of 5 provisional reports for 2019 and therefore contains an incomplete dataset for the year. The final report is scheduled for publication in November 2020. We have incorporated changes to the report and tables as a result of changes to the legislation. Further information on these?changes is available.

The report and accompanying tables includes information on the:

  • amount of UK road transport fuel from renewable and fossil fuel
  • number of Renewable Transport Fuel Certificates (RTFCs) which have been issued to fuel meeting the sustainability requirements
  • balance of RTFCs by obligation period
  • trades of RTFCs between suppliers and traders
  • carbon and sustainability characteristics of the renewable fuel to which RTFCs have been issued
  • voluntary scheme data of renewable transport fuel

There are 2 sets of data tables for this period. The first set of tables (RF_01) report the supply of renewable fuel to the UK under the Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation (RTFO). The second set of tables (RF_02) report the supply of renewable fuel to the UK under the Motor Fuel Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions Reporting Regulations. Though the 2 reporting mechanisms are similar, there is some variation in categorisation between the RTFO and FQD leading to small differences between the 2 tables. For more details, see the notes and definitions.
