(2016): Transformation scenarios towards a low-carbon bioeconomy in Austria
ENERGY STRATEG REV. 2016; 13-14: 125-133. FullText FullText_BOKU

The transformation towards a low-carbon bioeconomy until 2050 is one of the main strategic long-term targets of the European Union. This work presents transformation scenarios for the case of Austria with GHG reduction to about 20% of Kyoto baseline. The scenarios are developed with an optimization model integrating the energy sector, land use and biomass flows. Focus is on investigating possible developments in domestic biomass supply and use. Biomass is crucial for (largely) decarbonising the energy system and replacing fossil-based and energyintensive materials. Domestic biomass use (dry mass) increases by 32% in an xxxintensivexxx and 11% in an xxxalternativexxx transformation scenario, while total energy consumption decreases by 40%. Transformation to a low-carbon bioeconomy could be accomplished without additional biomass imports. (C) 2016 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
