Bioenergy plays a key role in contributing to the global efforts of decarbonising the energy system, reducing the world’s reliance on fossil fuels, and increasing access to affordable, reliable, and sustainable energy for all, towards the achievement of climate change mitigation goals. However, the global expansion of bioenergy production may increase pressure on land use, leading to competition for food production, deforestation, and other environmental impacts.
Therefore, strategic planning for a modern and sustainable bioenergy development is crucial. Such planning requires careful and detailed site-specific assessments, which include:
