transport costs Tag

A key consideration in the viability of biomass energy is its cost, most of which is incurred in the course of transport. This is particularly true in developing countries which often lack sufficient infrastructure. A report supported by Intelligent Energy-Europe titled "Long Term Potentials and Costs of RES; Part II: The Role of International Biomass Trade" estimates average costs for various feedstock categories in Europe, with forecasts given out to 2030.
