A Method to Assess Biomass Resources and Potential Contribution to a Regional Emission and Energy Plan

G. Fiorese, G. Guariso & A. Polimeni
A rational exploitation of bioenergy resources strictly depends on the type and amount of biomass that is locally available. It is thus crucial to assess the biomass potential and its possible contribution to GHG emission mitigation and to the energy budget looking at the specific characteristics of a given territory. We propose a method to compare different biomass ¬to¬ energy systems as an aid to local administrations in developing their bioenergy action plans. Together with...
