The objective of this paper is to present and apply two different methodological approaches for the assessment of the biomass resources and their territorial availability in two South European rural regions: (a) Capitanata (IT) (b) Thessaly (GR). The corresponding energy potentials and the integration of the biomass based energy applications into the regional energy systems will be also discussed. Scenarios about future development of the agro¬energy sector, customized according to the specific characteristics of each...
