Abstract

Sustainable Bioenergy Potentials for Europe and the Globe

In the framework of the EU FP7 project EnerGEO (Earth Observation for Monitoring and Assessment of the Environmental Impact of Energy Use) sustainable energy potentials for agricultural and forest areas were estimated by applying three different model approaches. The EPIC (Environmental Policy Including Climate) yield forecast model was used to estimate crop yields. The Global Forest Model (G4M) was applied to estimate global woody biomass growth.
