BIOWERT

Assessment of biomass-based energy carriers in Austria from an ecologic and economic perspective

  • Sep 2021Mar 2023

Project description

The aim of BIOWERT is to assess biomass-based energy carriers in Austria from an ecologic and economic perspective, as well as to develop a dynamic model for the optimization of biomass for energetic use. Various technologies and a range of different energy carriers (solid, liquid and gaseous biomass fractions) are being assessed from an economic, socioeconomic and ecologic perspective, taking into consideration the entire life-cycle. In line with the aim to decarbonise the Austrian energy system by 2040, concrete recommendations for the optimal use of biomass in Austria, as well as for future areas of research, from an energy economics perspective are being developed.
