A Policy-Oriented Reassessment of Bioenergy Potential Estimates

S.Y. Searle & C.J. Malins
With legal mandates promoting biofuel production in several regions around the world, a growing interest in the future potential of bioenergy production is fueling a proliferation of modeling studies on global biomass availability. Understanding the potential for sustainable biomass availability is vital in setting an appropriate level of aspiration for future bioenergy targets, and in understanding the extent to which bioenergy can contribute to a low carbon energy system in the future. However, many of...
