Sustainable impact assessment evaluates how different policies, land-use management or alternative scenarios for future economic development affect the sustainability of a sector and provides information for decision makers. BioE-bioD applied the Tool for Sustainability Impact Assessment (ToSIA) to project and evaluate alternative future forest resource use scenarios in Eastern Finland.
Sustainable Bioenergy Solutions for Tomorrow (BEST) project was funded by The Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation (TEKES) and coordinated by two of the six Strategic Centers for science, technology and innovation in Finland: Finnish Bioeconomy Cluster (FIBIC) and Cluster for Energy and Environment (CLEEN). This cross-boundary program aimed at building a solid common understanding of the future bioenergy business opportunities as well as the necessary know-how and capabilities for seizing them.
The Biomass Energy Europe (BEE) project was initiated to harmonise methodologies for biomass resource assessments for energy purposes in Europe and its neighbouring countries. This allows to improve consistency, accuracy and reliability of biomass assessments for energy, which can serve the planning of a transition to increase energy from renewable sources in the European Union.
