Abstract [en]

Demands on forest bioenergy feedstock are projected to increase in many countries due to climate change mitigation requiring renewable energy sources. However, national energy planning may need to be informed about local and landscape conditions in order to promote sustainable use of forest biomass resources as well as other ecosystem services. Therefore, integrated modelling of energy use and resource availability is called for.

The aim of this study was to analyse the forest biomass potential for Lithuania for energy pathways, while comparing the projected use of forest bioenergy feedstock with available resources applying environmental restrictions. This was performed using the Landscape simulation and Ecological Assessment (LEcA) tool and the energy model MESSAGE, while discussing links between these in order to better connect energy planning on national and local levels.

The results showed that under a Biomass-Low pathway and business-as-usual forest management, demands would be met up to 2050, while a Biomass-High pathway and more intensive forest management may lead to difficulties to meet the demands in the later end of the period. Linking the energy model with the LEcA tool enable iterations and information exchange for comparison between demand and supply, and may contribute to a sustainable and efficient use of forest as bioenergy feedstock resource.
