AEBIOM position in the project: Project Leader


In short:

BASIS aims at interacting with bioenergy project developers and investors, providing them with a comprehensive view on the sustainable supply and competition for wood for wood chips boilers, using intuitive maps of NUTS2 regions of all EU27 member states. Information on wood supply potential combined with existing use of wood chips and sustainability aspects influencing such supply is processed on the basis of a sound methodology.


  • The core idea of this project is to provide in-depth information on the regional supply and demand situation of wood chips by combining the estimated potentially available quantities with actual consumption data based on the identification of bioenergy plants (above 1 MW) using wood chips and other wood chips consumers in the same region.
  • In addition, sustainability dimension of the supply will be considered with several environmental criteria from a project developer point of view. BASIS will help to reduce and address sustainability risk. Finally the efficiency of using biomass will be evaluated as well. This information collected will be condensed in a comprehensive and easy to use GIS tool.

Target groups:

Bioenergy project developers, Feedstock suppliers and Investors, National and European Policy Makers.
