UKERC Mapping Biomass

The aim of the UKERC Spatial Mapping project is to use a whole systems approach to explore spatial aspects of bioenergy development in Great Britain to 2050, subject to environmental, economic and social factors. Fundamental to this research is the application of process-based models that simulate Short Rotation Coppice and Miscanthus growth, alongside knowledge of soils and climate, to predict the yield and supply of these second generation bioenergy crops.
