Opportunities exist to build synergies with various sectors of the economy, thus promoting sustainable production while also creating jobs and income. Strategic choices, public policy, and coordinated action among stakeholders at local and national levels shall be defined based on biomass resources and commercial technologies available, using multiple criteria to determine an enhanced role for bioenergy. Ultimately, bioenergy shall contribute to improved energy security, energy balance in the economy, and welfare. Attention shall be given to guarantee food security and welfare distribution. The project recommended strategies and roadmaps for various bioenergy segments in the country.

The project was supported by the Swedish Energy Agency and was conducted in collaboration with the Energy Research Department at KTH Royal Institute of Technology who served as lead.
