Biomass Scenario Model (BSM) Tool

Author(s):


This tool is based off of the Biomass Scenario Model, a system dynamics model developed at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) to explore the potential contribution of biofuel technologies to the transportation energy supply for the United States. While the BSM Tool on the KDF does not offer the full capabilities of the NREL model, it does allow users to explore the impacts of different policy scenarios on future biomass feedstock and bioenergy production

Billion Ton Study Data Explorer

Author(s):


The report, Biomass as Feedstock for a Bioenergy and Bioproducts Industry: The Technical Feasibility of a Billion Ton Annual Supply (generally referred to as the Billion-Ton Study or 2005 BTS), was an estimate of “potential” biomass within the contiguous United States based on numerous assumptions about current and future inventory production capacity, availability, and technology. The follow-up report, Biomass as Feedstock for a Bioenergy and Bioproducts Industry: An Update to the Billion Ton Annual Supply (generally referred to as the 2011 BTS or BT2), expands on the 2005 BTS to include:A spatial, county-by-county inventory of primary feedstocks, price and available quantities (e.g., supply curves) for the individual feedstocks. A more rigorous treatment and modeling of resource sustainability. The 2011 Billion Ton Study Data Explorer makes available the results of biomass supply analyses described in the 2011 BTS. Projected biomass supplies can be explored by resource type as modeled by feedstock price or yield scenario.
