Appropriate uses of Bioenergy

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.
