Abstract

In recent years, bioenergy—energy produced using plants, trees, and other organic matter—has aroused interest, given its potential to bolster a country’s energy security, manufacturing, job creation, and the possibility of reducing environmental impacts through greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions (Childs and Bradley 2007). Forest and agricultural biomass-based energy sources are being considered as an immediately feasible alternative for reducing GHG, especially carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuel burning and land-use change (Abbasi and Abbasi 2010; U.S. Department of Energy [USDOE] 2011a; Gan and Cashore 2013). Government and private sector investment in biomass-based energy sources has surged in many areas of the world (Lal et al. 2013).
