This is a report supporting the Bioenergy Review (December 2011).
The supporting research creates a modelling framework that can help to asses the most appropriate uses of bioenergy and to apply this to the best data available. The research suggests a hierarchy of appropriate uses:
- Non-energy uses for wood in construction (highly desirable)
- If feasible, carbon capture and storage when coupled with bioenergy use (highly desirable)
- Without carbon capture and storage, the use of liquid biofules in aviation and shipping (desirable).
The supporting research was written by:
- Redpoint Energy
- with help from Ecofys UK.
