Final Project Deliverables are now available for download.

The lack of clear 'real-time' answers to critical questions about the merits of bioenergy and the sustainable role it can play in future energy systems poses a significant risk for development of policy frameworks and binding targets. The provision of validated, up-to-date, quantitative information for the supply and demand dynamics is therefore of vital importance.

The Biomass Futures Project will assess the role that biomass can play in meeting EU energy policy targets. It will develop tailored information packages for stakeholders, as well as inform and support policy makers at both the European and national levels.

The project will define the key factors likely to influence biomass supply, demand and uptake over the next twenty years (meeting the RED targets). Among other factors, partners will examine the EU heat, electricity-CHP and transport markets; supply and demand dynamics; the effects of indirect land use change, water use and social aspects on future biomass supply, etc.

Throughout the project collaboration with stakeholders will be vital. Working with key stakeholders from the industry & policy sides, we will be able to gain from the interactions and have their feedback to validate the findings from the modelling work. Stakeholder perspectives and feedback will be integrated into the project outputs and deliverables at every stage.
