Abstract

This study analyses the Russian forest biomass-based bioenergy sector. It is shown that presently - although given abundant resources - the share of heat and electricity from biomass is very minor. With the help of 2 IIASA models, future green-field bioenergy plants are identified in a geographically explicit way. Results indicate that by only using 3.3% of the total wood removals, twice as much heat and electricity than presently available from biomass could be generated. Furthermore, there is a multitude of additional co-benefits quantified for the socio-economic sector such as green jobs linked to bioenergy.
