Support schemes

In Austria, the main support scheme for renewable energy sources used in transport is a quota system. This scheme obliges companies importing or producing petrol or diesel to ensure that biofuels make up a defined percentage of their annual fuel sales. Furthermore, biofuels are supported through a fiscal regulation mechanism. Moreover, the scheme `klimaaktiv mobil` inter alia supports the conversion to alternative drive systems.
