This module calculates the energy potential from different biomass sources (forest and agricultural residues) within a NUTS3 region.
This module assess the biomass energy that might be generated from a biomass source. The CM use the default dataset for the whole EU that are at NUTS3 level. The CM do not consider which is the biomass that can be sustainable used for the energy production.
Input layers and parameters are:
Output layers and parameters are:
The module for each biomass resource available apply a first percentage to reduce the total amount of biomass that can be effectively and realistically collected. For instance for the forestry biomass can have different percentage of biomass collection rate depending on the forestry ground conditions (e.g. slope, terrain roughness) and the mechanization of the process (e.g. use of cable crane, harvester and forwarder, etc.). While for each source the user can select the efficiency in transforming the biomass energy into thermal and electricity energy. The user can select different efficiency per biomass sources, because different source might require different treatment and process.
Here you get the bleeding-edge development for this calculation module.
