Bioenergy Simulator

The Bioenergy simulator is a user-friendly web-based application developed to help policy makers, practitioners, and business developers estimate potential bioenergy and plan bioenergy development taking into consideration combinations of area, biomass resource, technology, and end-use.

The simulator aims to raise awareness on modern bioenergy production options to help meet global climate goals, decarbonise the world’s energy system, and ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable energy for all.

It is important to note that this knowledge is provided without assessing the financial viability, the socio-economic feasibility, and the environmental impacts.

It is one of a series of web applications developed by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) as part of the Global Atlas for Renewable Energy.
