### Software Tool (DSS) for the Design & Assessment of Biomass Energy Systems

I. Vallios, G. Papadakis & T. Tsoutsos
Biomass utilization as an alternative to the fossil fuels is of high interest, especially when the resulting waste heat is also captured and exploited as useful thermal energy source, in CHP energy systems. The aim of this paper is to present the development of a Decision Support System for the assessment of Biomass Energy Systems implementing the existing biomass combustion technologies, including Biomass Gasification, Integrated Gas Turbine-Steam Generator, Co-Firing, and Biomass Direct Combustion models for...
